HC Deb 28 September 1931 vol 257 c16
15. Major COHEN

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will state the total amount of accrued balances that have been retained by his Department under the provisions of Article 6 (1) of the 1919 Royal Warrant in respect of single ex-service men pensioned for mental trouble who have died in mental institutions?


Under the terms of the Royal Warrants no balance accrues in the circumstances referred to. No record has been kept of the amounts which would otherwise have been payable to such men had they been discharged as recovered.
