HC Deb 03 March 1955 vol 537 c2214
8. Miss Ward

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the fact that the question of railway super annuitants has been referred to a committee as a result of Government action, he will refer the case of retired police officers' widows who died before July, 1948,to an independent committee to see what suggestions can be made for meeting their claim.

Major Lloyd-George

No, Sir. I do not think there is any basis of comparison between these two classes of pensioners.

Miss Ward

Will my right hon. and gallant Friend give an assurance that he will be a fighting friend for a good cause within the Cabinet? Can I have an assurance, please?

Major Lloyd-George

I readily give my hon. Friend that assurance.
