HC Deb 11 December 1929 vol 233 c477W

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will consider amending the Regulation in regard to treatment allowances which requires that any payments from welfare or similar funds received by the pensioner during treatment shall be deducted from the treatment allowance?


The special allowances which may be payable during treatment are subject to the condition that the patient is found to be unable, in consequence of the course of treatment given to him, to provide for the support of himself and his family. It is, therefore, and always has been, a condition of the grant of these allowances that the patient shall not at the same time draw both the maximum allowance and also draw payment such as wages or sick pay in lieu of wages.
