HC Deb 16 July 1924 vol 176 cc344-5
16. Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty when the deliberations of the Committee which is considering post-War widows' pensions are likely to be concluded?


I presume that in referring to a committee the Noble Lady has in mind the conference between representatives of the three Services indicated in my reply of 30th April last to the hon. and gallant Member for North Portsmouth, regarding the promulgation of the post-War Regulations governing awards to widows, etc., of seamen and marines. Agreement has not yet been reached on certain of the outstanding points, but I hope that this will be effected and the full Regulations promulgated at an early date.
