HC Deb 03 July 1919 vol 117 c1196W

asked the Pensions Minister if he is aware that the widowed mother of the late William Henry Martin, No. 2057, Royal Marines, is receiving 7s 6d. per week pension for the loss of her only son; that she has no other source of income; that she is unable to work owing to rheumatism; if he can see his way to revise the pension so as to give her something to exist on; and, if not, will he request the local war pensions committee to act at once?


In view of the further information received it has been found possible to award a provisional pension of 15s. a week in this case. The award, which has been notified to Mrs. Martin, is subject to confirmation on receipt of certain particulars now being obtained from the local war pensions committee.
