HC Deb 15 December 1958 vol 597 c143W
63. Mr. Prentice

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance why payments of the allowance for lowered standard of occupation to war pensioners assessed below 20 per cent. cease when the weekly payments of pension cease, even when the disability has been classified as of indeterminate duration and is still preventing the pensioner from following his regular occupation or one of equivalent standard.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The hon. Member is under a misapprehension. An award of an allowance for lowered standard of occupation may continue, or indeed a new award of such an allowance may be made, even though other payments in respect of disablement assessed at less than 20 per cent. have ceased.
