HC Deb 03 December 1959 vol 614 cc156-7W
103. Mr. Cooper

asked the Minister of State for Commonwealth Relations by what authority Mr. Sandford was deprived of his rights to increases of retired pay sanctioned under Pensions Increase Warrants.

Mr. Alport

Mr. Sandford is not in receipt of retired pay, but receives a compassionate allowance. This compassionate allowance is not within the scope of the Pensions Increase Warrants, but it has, nevertheless, been increased to the same extent as if those warrants had applied to it.
