HC Deb 09 March 1922 vol 151 c1506W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether a widow who has been awarded a pension in respect of her son, killed in action, who was her sole support, and who forfeits her pension on remarriage, is entitled, in the event of the death of her second husband, to have her pension renewed if she is then without means of support?


The answer is in the negative. In the event of the re-marriage of a parent who is in receipt of pension, a substantial lump sum gratuity is payable under the terms of the Royal Warrant, in final settlement of her claim upon the State.
