HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 c417W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, under any scheme to increase the pensions of retired Civil servants, he is prepared to include in the Grant retired police pensioners in Ireland, who are compelled to maintain themselves and their families on pensions which even in pre-war days were inadequate to meet their requirements?


As I have already informed the hon. Member, the Government are not prepared to grant a bonus to pensioners. This decision applies to retired police pensioners in Ireland as well as to Civil pensioners.
