HC Deb 01 May 1922 vol 153 cc983-4
102. Sir F. HALL

asked the Minister of Pensions whether wounded or disabled men who are in receipt of treatment allowances, if they have to absent them selves from treatment owing to illness not directly attributable to their service disability, are deprived of these allowances; and, if so, whether, in view of the hardship caused by this Regulation, he will consider as to its modification?


Treatment allowances are necessarily restricted to periods during which the man, in consequence of a course of treatment recommended for his war disability, is unable to provide for his own support. Where for any reason the man is unable to continue his treatment, my right hon. Friend has no power to authorise allowances. In such a case the man would, of course, resume his pension.
