HC Deb 06 December 1934 vol 295 c1850W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the previously earned retired pay or pension of any State pensioner was taken into consideration by those framing the Army Orders of 1917 and 1920 that dealt with disability pensions?


Yes, Sir; special provision was made in the Royal Warrants of 1st August, 1917, and of 2nd July, 1920, for officers disabled by Great War service and in receipt of retired pay or pension in respect of service. Their position was fully considered and reported on by the Select Committee on Pensions in 1919, and the provision made in the Warrant of 1920 was in accordance with the recommendations of that committee.
