§ 5. Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Pensions, the number of men in receipt of a combined award under Article 1,163 of the 1914 Warrant; and whether he will make representations to the Treasury asking that these pensioners may be eligible for increase of pension under the Pensions Increase Act?
Approximately 7,000 men are in receipt of awards of the nature referred to. The point raised in the second part of the question affects also the Service Departments, with whom the position of the men concerned is under discussion.
