HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 c1841W

asked the Pensions Minister whether he is aware that dissatisfaction exists amongst discharged soldiers and sailors in Ireland because of the inadequate pensions they are receiving; and whether the Government will increase the permanent and temporary scales of pensions, as those laid down in the Royal Warrant are inadequate owing to the increase in the cost of living and are hard on disabled men who are incapacitated from doing any kind of work and unable to add to their email pensions?


The adequacy of the pension scales generally is under the consideration of the Select Committee, and will no doubt be dealt with in their Report.
