HC Deb 19 December 1919 vol 123 c857W
Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the Military Service Act of April, 1918, imposed alike on all pensioners below the age of fifty-one, whether naval or military, the obligation to come forward and serve their country, he will state why military pensioners who were called up under that Act and were considered more useful in a semi-civilian capacity under the Government than in the ranks, being in consequence employed in Record Offices, Pay Offices, Recruiting Offices, and the like, have been denied the privilege of having their pensions re-assessed under Army Order 325 of 1919, although naval pensioners similarly employed have had their pensions re-assessed?


I can add nothing to the answers given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War in reply to similar questions on this subject.
