HC Deb 01 July 1952 vol 503 cc17-8W
58. Dr. King

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the special campaign pensions, previously awarded to veterans of the South African and previous wars, and reduced or cut by the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, because of other State provision for old age, may be restored.

Mr. Hutchison

No. These special campaign pensions are compassionate awards payable if the recipient is in need. The award is, therefore, adjusted if his circumstances change.
