§ 1 and 2. Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Minister of Pensions (1) whether, seeing that pension allowances to war orphans mentally or physically incapacitated cease altogether at the age of 21, he will consider the question of continuing the allowance so long as need and incapacity exists;
(2) what steps are taken to ensure that the necessary treatment and training is given to mentally or physically incapacitated war orphans whilst they are still receiving allowances from the Ministry; and whether any of these at the age of 21 have not received adequate treatment or training and have had their pensions withdrawn?
§ The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
I would refer the hon. Member to the full answer which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Derby (Sir R. Luce) on the 28th June last, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
