§ Mr. BRIANT
asked the Secretary of State for War if the question of pensions for ex-soldier clerks in the War Office is 434W under consideration; and, if so, if he will retain such men as are about to be discharged owing to having reached the age limit until the matter is decided?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The eligibility of these ex-soldier clerks for pensions is still under consideration. I am not able to in Ike any promise that, pending a decision, they will be specially retained in employment after they have passed the normal age limit.
