§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Pensions whether the regulations still permit ex-service men suffering from wartime disabilities to receive special diet or allowances for such; whether any such concession applies to those in receipt of 100 per cent. pensions; and, if not, when such concession ceased to operate?
§ Major TRYON
Cases of pulmonary tuberculosis and of diabetes mellitus may still receive under the Regulations, if the circumstances require it, additional allowances in the form of special diet provided that the pension in each case is not at the maximum rate. The present Regulations governing the grant of this allowance, which is not provided for by the Royal Warrant, have been in force for the last three years.
