HC Deb 09 November 1939 vol 353 cc416-7
69. Major Milner

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in connection with the Royal Warrant, he proposes to publish a schedule giving the standard degree of disablement, as was done in 1923, for the guidance of war pensions committees?

Sir W. Womersley

It is not the intention at the moment to issue to War Pensions Committees a similar publication to that of 1923.

Major Milner

Will the hon. Gentleman be good enough to discuss it with me on some occasion?

Sir W. Womersley

As the hon. and gallant Member knows, there is an advisory committee considering the Royal Warrant, and I am sure he will agree with me that it would be foolish to send out instructions until that committee has reported.
