HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1538
82. Mr. Woods

asked the Minister of Pensions whether unmarried dependants, living as wives of Civil Defence workers, can be placed on the same basis under the Personal Injuries (Civilian) Scheme, as at present provided under the War Service (Army and Navy) Scheme?

The Minister of Pensions (Sir Walter Womersley)

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 1st July to the hon. Member for Shoreditch (Mr. Thurtle), when I explained the reasons for the present arrangements and why, in the view of His Majesty's Government, no change in them was called for.
