HC Deb 09 March 1911 vol 22 cc1729-30W

asked the Secretary of State for War, if representations have from time to time been made to him in favour of Army pensions being paid weekly; and whether he can hold out any hope of such a system being adopted?


As I have stated on previous occasions in this House, arrangements can be made for weekly payments in cases where circumstances render it desirable, but it is doubtful whether an universal system of weekly payments would be in the best interests of the majority of the men.
