HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 cc1453-4W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in accordance with Section 3 of the War Pensions Act, 1920, now amalgamating various areas in the counties of England which have been previously administered by the county war pensions committees to the areas of various county borough committees, he intends to enforce paragraph 10 of the War Pensions Committees (General) Regulations, 1920, where an ex-service man is already administering the said borough; and, if so, can he state why this is being done?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I am, however, taking advantage of the provisions of Subsection 3 of Section 3 of the War Pensions Act, 1920, to transfer to the new committees those officers in the employment of dissolved committees who have the necessary qualifications.
