§ Mr. N. MACLEAN
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?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
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 exact2126W amount of the overpayment, and if any adjustment is necessary it will be at once effected.
