HC Deb 23 July 1919 vol 118 c1385W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Mrs. Robinson, of 2, Pembury Place, High Street, Alder-shot, widow of the late Sergeant-Major J. W. Robinson, M.C., Royal Army Medical Corps, during her husband's life drew £2 14s. 1d. weekly separation allowance, in addition to 25s. per week remitted to her by her husband; that now, since her husband has been killed in action, she receives a total pension with bonuses of 29s. 6d. per week; and that, although her husband had completed twenty years' service out of twenty-one years qualifying for his pension, she has received no compensation for this; and if he can state whether this case can be reconsidered?


I am afraid that under the Regulations the widow is not entitled to any payment from Army funds in addition to the pension awarded by the Ministry of Pensions.
