§ Mr. Janner
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will consider giving a Christmas bonus, either in money or in goods, to ex-Service men who are completely incapacitated.
§ Mr. Simmons
My right hon. Friend has no power to make a payment of this kind. For the convenience of war pensioners arrangements have been made for pensions due for payment on Christmas Day, or on 26th December (except in Scotland), to be paid a week in advance.
