asked the Secretary of State for War the number of special campaign pensions that have been terminated, in view of the increased old age pension, and the total saving there-from.

So far 1,568 special campaign pensions have been cancelled on account of the pensioner being in receipt of the increased rate of old age pension; in 198 of these cases a small Service pension, which had been in abeyance so long as the special campaign pension was more beneficial, has been resumed. The approximate total saving to Army Funds on the cases so far reviewed is £38,000 a year.
