HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 cc1841-2W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been directed to the pensions granted on retirement to officers promoted to brevet rank for distinguished service in the field; whether such brevet rank under present Regulations confers no increased rate of pension over that of the substantive rank of the officer, so that a major who has gained the rank of full colonel for distinguished service in the field only receives a major's pension on retirement; and whether such officers will be granted pensions at the increased rate?


The whole question of pensions is under consideration, and I am not in a position to make any statement on the subject at present.
