That it is expedient to make provision, out of moneys provided by Parliament, for the payment of any forfeited pension which may be restored under any Act of the present Session relating to War Pensions and of any allowances payable during the continuance of any Pension so restored.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
This involves a sum of money which in any one year will not exceed £5,000, so that the amount is small. No new principle is involved; it extends to airmen and officers the principle already adopted in regard to soldiers and sailors, for the restoration of forfeited pensions. Arrangements are also made to extend it to the families of pensioners, when those pensioners are in prison, so that there may be given to such families the allowances that it may be thought right and proper by the Ministry to pay them.
