A disturbing point has been raised in the RNZRSA submission to the Law Commission rewrite of the War pensions Act. It was agreed in 1916 and reaffirmed in 1954 that the War Pension is to be assessed at 50% of the mean average male weekly wage.
This has not happened!!
The New Zealand Government appear to be ripping off the Veterans hundreds of millions of dollars in entitlements.
