HC Deb 21 June 1939 vol 348 cc2265-6W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the advisability of applying to members of the Territorial forces and the Regular Army, and to militiamen, in respect of death or injury during peace-time training, the scales of compensation for members of air-raid precautions services, other than auxiliary firemen, fixed by the Lord Privy Seal on 2nd March, 1939?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

The question of improving the scales applicable to soldiers has been under consideration, and, as stated in the answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend, the Member for Ludlow (Colonel Windsor-Clive) on Thursday last, an improvement has already been made in the scales of pensions for widows.
