asked the Secretary of State for War the rate of pension for a retired brigadier at the end of the 1939–45 war; and what variations have taken place since.

Under the post-war code which took effect on 19th December, 1945, the standard rate for a brigadier was £900 a year. The 1951 improvements which apply to officers retiring after 31st August, 1950, increased this to £1,000 a year and added a terminal grant of £1,000.
