HC Deb 04 May 1948 vol 450 c1074
19. Mr. Lipson

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will arrange that on the death of one parent in receipt of a dependant's pension in respect of a son killed in war, the pension shall automatically continue to be paid to the surviving parent.

The Minister of Pensions (Mr. Buchanan)

I have arranged that on the death of a parent the case of the surviving parent shall be considered at once and the appropriate award made.
