HC Deb 23 November 1920 vol 135 cc196-7

asked the Prime Minister if, having regard to the fact that thousands of widows whose husbands fell in France during the War are unable to visit that country to see their husbands' graves, owing to their pecuniary position, he will consider the possibility and the advisability of the Government granting the necessary funds for these unfortunate widows to be taken to France and provided with the necessary accommodation as the guests of the nation; such widows to be selected after consultation with local war pensions committees?


I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to my answer on this subject generally on 18th November last in reply to a question put by the hon. Member for Merthyr Tydvil, to which I am yet unable to add anything.

Forward to
