HC Deb 17 December 1919 vol 123 cc433-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War if the question of pensions for ex-soldier clerks in the War Office is 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?


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.
