HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 c1813W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that deductions from men's pensions are being made in respect of sums alleged to have been improperly paid more than a year ago, and that these payments were due to clerical errors for which the pensioners were not responsible; and whether, in view of the hardship such stoppages are imposing on men disabled in the War, he will consider the question of ordering that the practice shall cease?

Major TRYON:

This matter is receiving my close personal attention, and I hope shortly to make arrangements which will, I think, reasonably meet the hon. Member's suggestion.
