HC Deb 23 June 1948 vol 452 cc136-7W
45. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Minister of Defence if he is aware that N.C.Os. and men who were decorated in the 1939 war and who are in receipt of a disability pension get an extra sixpence a day; and whether he will now apply this rule to those in similar circumstances who were decorated in the 1914 war.

Mr. Alexander

In 1945 certain awards were added to the list of those which carry with them an addition of 6d. a day to pension. It was made clear then, and it has been repeated since, that these changes applied only to awards made since September, 1939. It is not proposed to alter that decision now.
