HC Deb 17 July 1934 vol 292 c924
12. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he will furnish a return showing the number of ex-Army officers in receipt of pensions other than War pensions; the average amount of pension per head; and the number of such pensioners who are in paid employment while in receipt of their pensions?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Douglas Hacking)

With regard to the first part of the question, I assume that the hon. Member is referring to retired pay. If so the information will be found on pages 255 and 256 of the current Army Estimates. With regard to the second part, the answer is £330, and with regard to the last part, I regret that there is no information available.
