HC Deb 13 July 1882 vol 272 c282

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether, when arranging the new scale of pensions for the widows of seamen and marines killed in the discharge of duty, he will provide that the same pension shall be given to motherless children of those killed; and, whether he can now state when the new scale can be laid upon the Table of the House?


All I can say in answer to the hon. Member's Question is that this matter is still under consideration; but I hope to be able before the end of the Session to announce the decision arrived at.
