§ 6. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Minister of Pensions whether a decision has been reached with regard to the former powers of the Special Grants Committee to make grants to widows of ex-service men suffering from serious and prolonged illness.
I am glad to be able to inform the hon. and gallant Member that the Government are prepared to authorise the making of grants by the Special Grants Committee to widows and children in cases of hardship due to serious and prolonged illness, under suitable conditions, the details of which will be settled in conjunction with the Treasury.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
In thanking the hon. Gentleman for his satisfactory answer, may I also ask, up to what limit this grant is made?
