HC Deb 02 April 1919 vol 114 c1224W

asked the Pensions Minister under which article of the Pay Warrant a man who on transfer to Class W of the Reserve meets with an accident admittedly due to the disability which occasioned his transfer to Class W of the Reserve is regarded as being ineligible for pension?


Men were not transferred to Class W of the Reserve on account of disability, but because they were deemed to be of more use in a civil than in a military capacity Under the Royal Warrants only disabilities attributable to or aggravated by service can be accepted for pension, but if the hon. Member will furnish me with particulars of the case to which he refers I will have inquiry made.
