HC Deb 31 July 1956 vol 557 c120W
107. Mr. J. J. Astor

asked the Secretary of State for War what steps have been taken to inform Army pensioners whether or not they will benefit under the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1956.

Mr. F. Maclean

This scheme has received wide publicity, and practically all Army Service pensioners will benefit by it either immediately or in the future. Preliminary notices have not been sent to individual pensioners because the issue of these would delay the automatic review of all pensions which is being carried out. Pensioners will be given details of their new entitlement as soon as possible.
