HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 c1309W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will explain why pensions are entirely withdrawn in the case of mentally afflicted ex-service men who have been admitted to the public asylums as the result of war service; and if he will issue an Order for some financial assistance to be given to the wives and children of ex-service men who have subsequently lost their mental balance through active service overseas?


My hon. and gallant Friend appears to have been misinformed. The wives and children of ex-service men admitted to asylums for mental disability due to service receive the usual allowances provided under Article 6 of the Royal Warrant for the families of men under treatment away from home.
