HC Deb 03 March 1926 vol 192 cc1442-3W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if, for the convenience of pensioners, the amounts due can be paid weekly instead of monthly?


If, as I assume, the hon. Member refers to the pensions awarded to the widows, children and certain other relatives of seamen and marines under the post-War Regulations, which are at present paid monthly in arrear by His Majesty's Paymaster-General, I am glad to announce that, as from the 1st April next, these pensions will be paid weekly in advance through post offices. I may add that Naval service and disability pensions are paid quarterly in advance and it is not proposed to make any change.
