asked the Secretary of State for War when the reassessment of officers' pensions for those Regular officers who served throughout the war and were placed on retired pay before the new rates were announced, will be promulgated.

A scheme for the reassessment of these awards was approved over a year ago, and details were announced by my predecessor in his reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Knutsford (Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport) on 15th April, 1946, of which I am sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy. With few exceptions, the reassessment of the retired pay of the officers benefiting from the scheme has been completed.

Can the Minister say when the officer is likely to receive this money?

I hope that he has received it, if the assessment has been completed.

How does the officer know that it is assessed? I have heard nothing myself.

I think that the best thing would be, if the hon. and gallant Gentleman has any individual case in mind, to let me know.
