The arrangement suggested by the hon. Member raises issues which affect the regulations for dependants' allowances common to all three Services, and possibly also the Regulations governing the award of war pensions. It would not, therefore, be possible for the Admiralty alone to make a decision on this matter. In the particular case which I assume the hon. Member has in mind, the total of the war pension plus the dependants' allowance was in fact more than the amount of the dependants' allowance issued before the pension was awarded.
