HC Deb 23 May 1928 vol 217 cc1883-4

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has considered the advisability of any further measure of stabilisation of the existing rates of war pension?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

The effect of the arrangements made by the present Government in 1925 is to safeguard the existing rates of War Pension at any rate until 1931. At the same time I may inform my hon. and gallant Friend that the Government are already considering the conditions under which stabilisation of the present rates of all pensions and allowances under the Great War Warrants could suitably be effected, and I hope to be in a position to make a full statement before the end of the Session.

Colonel BROWN

Who is responsible for the initiation of this very satisfactory proposal?


The initiative is that of the Ministry of Pensions and of the Government.
