HC Deb 09 November 1920 vol 134 cc1016-7W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the conditions under which widows of soldiers who die after the termination of their service with the Colours is now under consideration; and, if so, will he be able to report the decision to this House at an early date?


If, as I presume, my hon. Friend is referring to the conditions of entitlement to widows' pension under Article 11 of the Royal Warrant, I am glad to be able to inform him that a decision has now been reached which satisfactorily covers the points at issue, and an amended version of the Article in question will be issued very shortly.
