HC Deb 05 June 1951 vol 488 c801
29. Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Pensions what action he proposes to take in regard to the claims made by the British Ex-Service Men's Association for a reassessment of their pensions and those of their families on death.

The Minister of Pensions (Mr. Isaacs)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Brixton (Lieut.-Colonel Lipton) on 17th April. The substantial improvements in the war pensions provisions which I then announced had full regard to the claims made by all the ex-Service organisations, including the British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association.

Sir W. Darling

On a point of order. At the conclusion of the Scottish Questions I noticed that nine Scottish Members had asked Questions. In your opinion, Mr. Speaker, does that seem excessive in view of the fact that there are 71 Members representing Scotland?
