HC Deb 16 February 1922 vol 150 c1241W
Captain COOTE

asked the Minister of Pensions what are the rules or regulations which govern the possibility of pensioners commuting all or part of their pensions for the payment of a lump sum?


Commutation of disablement pensions will be governed by Regulations shortly to be issued under Section 7 of the War Pensions Act, 1921, and will continue to be restricted, as at present, to exceptional cases of permanent pension in which it is clear that benefit would undoubtedly accrue to the pensioner and that a refusal to commute would occasion hardship.
