HC Deb 07 December 1920 vol 135 c1938W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider the hardship involved by the refusal to allow a widower without children any allowance in respect of the employment of a housekeeper; and whether he will consider an alteration in the law to remedy this state of affairs?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on the 29th ultimo in reply to a question on this subject by the hon. and gallant Member for Buckingham (Captain Bowyer). I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
