HC Deb 23 November 1920 vol 135 c198
18. Captain LOSEBY

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is yet in a position to give the House an assurance that soldiers wounded in Ireland during the present troubles will have exactly the same pension rights as soldiers wounded in the late War?


Until 30 days after the official end of the War, which has not yet been announced, soldiers are fully assured of the same pension rights as though they had been wounded in the late War. The position which may arise in the event of cases occurring after that date is receiving careful consideration.

Colonel C. LOWTHER

Will the same privilege be extended to the police?


That ought to be addressed to another Department.
