HC Deb 25 February 1919 vol 112 cc1605-6W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Pensions Minister whether, in view of the increased cost of living, he will consider the possibility of increasing the pensions of the orphans and widows of warrant officers, according to rank?


Under the Warrants in force, effect is given to rank in widows' pensions, while children have the same rates in the case of warrant officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates. I am unable to see any sufficient ground for alteration of the present system.
