§ Mr. GWYNNE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, under the recent Royal Warrant for pay the retired pay for officers was increased to meet the higher cost of living; whether this applies to temporary officers who have been invalided out of the Army with disability equal to the loss of a limb and placed on half-pay; and, if not, why not?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The retired pay of officers was increased under the recent Warrant in view of the higher cost of living and other considerations. Any question relating to the treatment of officers invalided out of the Army should be addressed to the Ministry of Pensions.
