HC Deb 16 April 1919 vol 114 c2922W

asked the Pensions Minister whether he will expedite the consideration of the claim for pension by Alice Vaughan, of 60, Soudan Road, Stafford, widow of the late Sergeant E. W. Vaughan, M.M., Machine Gun Corps, who died, as a result of the effects of his military service, on 27th November, 1918; whether he is aware that Mrs. Vaughan, on applying for assistance to the local war pensions office on Saturday, 5th April, was informed that she could not have any money as they had no cash, and that there has now been a delay of many weeks in issuing final papers in this case?


I regret that there has been delay in the settlement of this case. Full pension, with children's allowances, has now been awarded and notification has been sent both to the widow herself and to the local committee.
