HC Deb 29 May 1863 vol 171 c5

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether it is the intention of the Government to make any special grant to the widow of the late Sir John Inglis, K.C.B., under the peculiar circumstances of her melancholy bereavement.


said, in reply, that on the death of Sir John Inglis, Lady Inglis, by the direction of the late Sir George Lewis, received the largest amount of pension which it was in the power of the Secretary of State to grant. Since it had been granted, no official application had been received, which alone would enable the Secretary of State to apply to the Treasury, which had the sole power of granting a special pension.
