HC Deb 02 April 1925 vol 182 cc1562-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War the reason why a regular warrant officer, disabled in the War and discharged, gets no service pension in addition to his disability pension, whereas s. regular private under the same conditions is in receipt of both?


The hon. and gallant Member appears to be under a misapprehension. In no circumstances is a disabled warrant officer treated less favourably as regards service pension than a private soldier with equivalent service who is similarly disabled. On the contrary, the conditions governing awards are in some types of cases more favourable for warrant officers than privates. If the hon. and gallant Member has a particular case in mind and will let me have particulars, I will investigate it.
