§ 19. Major HAMILTON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether officers and other ratings in the Royal Navy and civilians in the employment of the Admiralty, who are killed or wounded when on service in connection with the present disturbances in Ireland, will be treated, as regards pension for disability or pension for their dependants if killed, on the same scale as laid down for those who suffered in the great War?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
Until 30 days after the Statutory date for the termination of the War, which has not yet been announced, officers and ratings of the Royal Navy who may be injured and the dependants of those who may be killed on service in connection with the present disturbances in Ireland, have pension rights upon the war 2081 scale. Civilians in Ireland are entitled to the same regulated compensation as civilians injured in the United Kingdom, but the hon. and gallant Member is doubtless aware that they can also claim compensation under the Criminal Injuries (Ireland) Act, 1919.
