§ 65. Sir ARCHIBALD WILLIAMSON
asked the Pensions Minister whether he is aware that many nurses have relatives dependent upon them; whether Army nurses are eligible for pensions if they suffer injury through the War in common with other branches of the Army; and, if so, will he take steps to place them on the same footing as other branches of the Army by making provision for dependants in cases where a nurse loses her life?
§ The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Mr. Hodge)
I have no knowledge as to 2122 whether many members of the Navy and Army Nursing Services have relatives dependent on them: No such cases have been brought to my notice, but I will consider the question of making some provision for the dependent relatives of nurses who lose their lives through war service. Army nurses are eligible for pensions if they suffer injury through military service arising out of the War.
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
Is the right hon. Gentleman desirous of information as to such cases being sent to him?
