§ 50. Mr. F. Willey
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will consider the granting of a special allowance related, but additional, to the disability pension paid in accordance to the table of assessments for specific injuries to the limbless survivors of the 1914–18 war.
Existing medical advice provides me with no ground for discriminating in this way between the limbless and other classes of war pensioner. However, as I said in my reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Merton and Morden (Captain Ryder) on 20th May, I will gladly look into any individual case in which it is felt that a limbless pensioner is suffering a greater degree of war disablement than that reflected by his pension assessment.
