Is not the Minister aware that, rightly, both sides of the House have always paid tribute to these ex-Service men who have been disabled in fighting for their country? Does not he think that it would have been far better, instead of giving the wealthy Surtax payers £34 million a year, to have given this to the ex-Service men who have been disabled in fighting for their country? That would have been welcomed, certainly on this side of the House.
