HC Deb 01 December 1919 vol 122 cc58-9W
Lieut.-Colonel MALONE

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any decision has yet been arrived at with regard to the pensions of the old Regulars, sergeants and warrant officers, who re- joined the Army at the outbreak of hostilities, served through the War, and so materially contributed to the training and shaping of the New Armies; and whether, in view of the amount of their pensions and that it is now over a year since the cessation of hostilities, he will consider the possibility of expediting this matter, which is having a prejudicial effect on recruiting generally?


Army Order 325, which was published in September, gives increased pensions to re-enlisted pensioners and others. I will send the hon. Member a copy.

Forward to
