HC Deb 08 November 1920 vol 134 c849W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether pre-War pensioners of the Indian Army are not participating in the benefits of the Pensions (Increase) Act; and, if so, the reason for the delay in this matter?


The provisions of the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1920, do not apply to pensioners of the Government of India, who are paid from Indian revenues; but the question whether these should be granted similar increases to their pensions is having my most careful consideration in communication with that Government.
