HC Deb 14 February 1924 vol 169 cc983-4
11. Mr. HARDIE

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will pay all reparation awards in cash and prevent the present confusion due to the demand for production of receipts and also the fraud forced upon unemployed men who procure sham purchase slips to get the money to keep them from starvation


I am not clear what my hon. Friend's difficulty is, but if he has in mind the method of payment of a lump sum granted in lieu of a final weekly allowance, I may say that in this matter I am guided by the advice of my War Pensions Committees. If my hon. Friend has any particular case in view perhaps he will be good enough to discuss it with me, and I will do my best to meet him.
