HC Deb 07 December 1920 vol 135 c1923
93. Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if there is any prospect of speeding up the actual payment of the increased pre-War pensions to those now entitled to receive them?


Less than 25 per cent. of the applications received have not been finally dealt with, and of these a considerable proportion consists of cases in which old age and other pensions are involved, necessitating inquiry of other public Departments. Every effort is being made to speed up these payments.
