§ Mr. GERALD HURST
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that, for the purpose of the life certificates required by the Pensions Issue Office, the signatures of officers of the Territorial Army are not recognised (Reference 3/MA/4716); and if he can see his way to concede such signatures' recognition?
§ Major TRYON
It is the practice of the Ministry to accept the signatures of officers of the Territorial Army on pensioners' life certificates; but I regret that, in the case brought to my notice by the hon. Member such a signature was refused under a misapprehension.
