HC Deb 17 February 1948 vol 447 c964
4. Mr. Heathcoat Amory

asked the Minister of Pensions which of the following current benefits to disability pensioners were not included, in principle, in the 1919 or the 1943 Royal Warrants, namely, allowances for wives and children, constant attendance allowance, education grants, unemployability allowance and hardship allowance.

Mr. Buchanan

Of the allowances mentioned by the hon. Member, the special hardship allowance was not included in the 1919 or 1943 Royal Warrants. The other allowances mentioned were included in these Warrants, but considerable improvements have been made in the conditions governing the award of allowances for wives and children and in respect of constant attendance.
