HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 cc793-4W
Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Pensions Minister whether hardship has been caused by the Regulation which does not permit of the payment of the parents' separation allowance in respect of sons who were demobilised prior to the date of the parents' application; and whether he is prepared to consider a modification of this Regulation in cases' of special hardship?


The Regulations do not prohibit a claim for special parents allowance being made after the soldiers demobilisation, and if my hon. and gallant Friend is aware of any case in which such a claim has been rejected I shall be glad if he will furnish particulars so that inquiries may be made.
