HC Deb 02 December 1926 vol 200 c1339
1. Mr. AMMON

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he can state the number of pensioners who have died in mental hospitals, where the certificate of death has been for disability other than that for which the pension was received?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

I regret that I have no classified records of this type of case which would enable me to give the particular information required.


Will it follow, as a matter of course, that if a man in receipt of 100 per cent. disability pension dies in a mental hospital his widow would be entitled to receive a war widows' pension?


It is no more a matter of course than as regards any other widow. It would obviously depend on the circumstances of the case.
