§ 87. Major BARKER
asked the Pensions Minister whether he will consider the advisability of increasing the representation of disabled soldiers on local war pensions committees and on local war pensions sub-committees?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The inclusion of at least two disabled men on every committee and sub-committee is already provided for by Statute, and by Section 15 of the War Pensions (Administrative Provisions) Act, 1918, the Minister of Pensions may order the number to be increased for the purpose of securing adequate representation on a particular committee. If the hon. and gallant Member knows of committees whose circumstances appear to him to render the existing representation inadequate, my right hon. Friend will gladly give the matter consideration.
