HC Deb 01 December 1932 vol 272 cc983-4

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that Mrs. Kitchen, of 122, London Road, Preston, widow of the late John F. Kitchen, Flight Clerk, No. 45333, Royal Air Force, has been underpaid by the Ministry 2s. 3d. a week on her widow's pension from the 3rd September, 1919, to 5th May, 1932; and whether, now that the mistake has been brought to light and the current payments amended, he will take steps to see that the arrears of pension due to the widow are issued?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

I am looking into this case, which presents quite exceptional features, and will communicate later with my hon. Friend.
