HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 c564W

asked the Prime Minister if he can see his way to advise His Majesty to augment the sum set aside for the Civil List pensions in order that the Grants made to necessitous relatives of deceased persons who have rendered valuable services to the State may bear a more adequate relation to those services, and manifest the gratitude of the nation in a more satisfactory manner than is possible by the amounts at present awarded?


The Government are not prepared to introduce the legislation suggested in the question.
