§ 64. Colonel ASHLEY
asked the Pensions Minister whether he can now state what decision he has arrived at with reference to the question of granting pensions on the higher scale to widows under the age of forty who have no children and who are incapable of 1491 working on grounds of ill-health, as the present Regulation involves hardship where the widow is unable to supplement her pension by earnings?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Colonel Sir James Craig)
It is proposed to meet the class of case referred to in this question by means of a new Regulation of the Special Grants Committee, the terms of which will be notified to Local War Pensions Committees at an early date.
