asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is now in a position to give any further information about the pensions of disabled former members of the Wehrmacht.

Yes, Sir. With effect from 1st August, 1947, pensions for disabled former members of the Wehrmacht, and for their widows and orphans, will be granted in the British zone under the Industrial Accident Scheme instead of the Invalidity Scheme as at present. This step will result in a substantial improvement in the lot of this class of pensioner.
