HC Deb 01 August 1935 vol 304 cc2859-60
81. Mr. LECKIE

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he will now consider favourably the payment of reservists' and other military pensions weekly through the Post Office, in the same way as civilian pensions are paid?

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

As regards reservists' pay I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on this question to my hon. Friend, the Member for Wallsend (Miss Ward) on 24th June last, to which I am unable to add. Soldiers' pensions, with a few exceptions, are already paid weekly through Post Offices.
