HC Deb 10 July 1962 vol 662 c122W
Commander Pursey

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that an Army long-service pensioner is drawing £1 3s. 7.50d. basic pension, with increases 1944–47 9s. 5.50d., 1952 10s. 0d., 1956 2s. 4.35d., total £2 5s. 5.35d. per week; how many similar cases there are; and whether any further sums can be paid to them from charitable or service funds for which he is responsible.

Mr. Profumo

I know of no Army Service pensioner who receives a sum of this kind. There should be none, and if the hon. Member has a particular case in mind I will gladly look into it.
