HC Deb 07 March 1910 vol 14 c1280W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the case of Patrick Hayes, a soldier pensioner, who served twenty-one years and seven months in the 1st Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment, eighteen years and seven months of this time being spent in India, and who was discharged twenty-one years ago on 1s. per day pension, and whose claim is that his pension should have been 1s. 1d. per day; and, taking into account this man's age and the fact that he states that his sons have joined the Army and that he has no help, whether the penny per day could be restored to him and made retro spective?


One shilling a day is the maximum rate of pension to which this man is entitled.
