asked the Secretary of State for War why the Special Campaign pension of 10s. weekly awarded to Mr. Hayhoe, aged 78 years, of 37, Francis Avenue, Ilford, formerly of the Essex Regiment, for his services in the South African campaign, has been withdrawn upon Mr. Hayhoe receiving 11s. 6d. weekly from the National Assistance Board; and whether he will take steps to ensure that Special Campaign pensions, are paid irrespective of any assistance received by the pensioners from the National Assistance Board.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. and learned Member for Hove on 25th July, 1950, of which I am sending him a copy.
