§ Mr. E. Smith
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will consider publishing a White Paper containing the results and experiences of his visits to the local pensions committees and his consultations with representatives of the committees in certain areas?1707W
§ Mr. Ramsbotham
No, Sir. These consultations are of an informal character and I do not consider that the course suggested would serve any useful purpose.
§ Major Despencer-Robertson
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider granting special campaign pensions to militiamen, members of volunteer companies attached to their Regular units, together with the members of the St. John's Ambulance Corps, who served in South Africa during the war of 1899–1902?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
Special campaign pensions, like service pensions, are confined to those men who have served on regular engagements.
