HC Deb 26 June 1924 vol 175 c588

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, seeing that pensions awarded under Article 1163 of the Royal Warrant of 1914 are based on pre-War rate, he will introduce such Amendments to the Pensions (Increase) Bill of 1924 as will permit of pensions awarded under this Article receiving the increases authorised under the Pensions (Increase) Acts, 1920 and 1924?


This matter is one to he considered in the framing of the Royal Warrant under which corresponding benefits to those provided by the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1920, and the Bill now before the House will be granted to military pensioners. Perhaps the hon. Member will address a question to the Secretary to the War Office on the subject.
