Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will revise the Regulations which prevent an ex-service man who is undergoing outpatient treatment from receiving any monetary allowance even when the disability for which he is being treated prevents him from following his normal occupation?
I fear that I am not in a position to accept my hon. Friend's suggestion. I may, however, state that at the present time there are on an average over 6,000 men undergoing outpatient treatment who are in receipt of full allowances under Article 0 of the Royal Warrant.
