HC Deb 23 February 1922 vol 150 cc2125-6W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that Thomas McCormack, No. 260167, late Royal Field Artillery, was imprisoned for 21 days, during which time his pension ceased; that a claim has been made upon him amounting to £12 12s., which is being deducted from his pension at the rate of 4s. per week; and whether he can state what is the reason for this deduction being made?


During imprisonment pension is forfeited, but in this case payment for that period appears to have been made to the man in error. I am having inquiries made as to the exact amount of the overpayment, and if any adjustment is necessary it will be at once effected.
