HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c589
14. Mr. Dunn

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that widespread dissatisfaction is prevailing amongst soldiers' wives and families in the Rother Valley division owing to periods of delay in making awards by the War Grants Advisory Committee and the meagre amounts granted; and will he take steps to speed up the procedure?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Pensions (Miss Wilkinson)

I cannot do better than refer the hon. Member to the very full statement which I made on these matters in the Debate on 25th instant.

Mr. Dobbie

Has the Minister anything further to add in regard to the meagre amounts paid and the future policy of the Ministry of Pensions?

Miss Wilkinson

My hon. Friend will recollect that I called attention to this matter in my speech, and I am sure that notice will be taken of it by those concerned.
