§ Mr. W. BAKER
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in cases where a man is discharged from the Army as the result of an accident arising out of his employment, but which is not accepted as directly attributable to service, it is the practice of his Department to admit a claim under the Workmen's Compensation Act, seeing that the man would receive no compensation by way of pension?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The Workmen's Compensation Act, 1925, is not applicable to the military forces of the Crown. Pension is payable where a soldier is discharged in consequence of disability attributable to his service.
