Army Pensions Act, 1968

Amendment of the Acts in relation to married pensions.

2.—(1) The relevant provisions of the Acts, in so far as they apply to a person who is granted a wound pension or a disability pension under the Acts or a pension to which section 7 of the Act of 1962 applies (whether the pension is granted before or after the passing of this Act), shall be construed as if the sole condition necessary for the grant of a further pension or a married pension to that person was that he should be a married man for the purposes of the Acts, and accordingly, on application being made to the Minister, the appropriate further pension or married pension under the Acts shall be payable to that person for so long as he continues to be a married man for those purposes.
