HC Deb 12 July 1954 vol 530 c1W
41 and 42. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance (1) what increase of pension is granted to an ex-Service man who has lost one eye when the sight of the second eye is completely destroyed as the result of cataract and optic neuritis, respectively;

(2) what considerations now influence him in deciding whether an increase of pension can be granted to an ex-Service man in the case of loss of function of a second paired organ, not as a result of military service.

Mr. Peake

Full information on these matters was given in the statement which I made in reply to the Questions put to me by several hon. Members on 15th February. I cannot usefully add anything to what I said on that occasion.
