HC Deb 30 September 1942 vol 383 cc808-9W
Dr. Little

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, as the matter is one of urgency owing to the increased cost of living, he will arrange for an increase of pension to disabled ex-Service men of the last war?

Sir W. Womersley

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to a similar Question by the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. Brown) on 6th August when I made it quite clear that these pensions were based on a cost of living figure higher than that prevailing to-day.
