HC Deb 09 March 1922 vol 151 c1506W

asked the Minister of Pensions why the widow of late Private H. II. Stratford, Royal Army Pay Corps, number of certificate W.F.G. 87, reference number, R.A.P.C. (W.4), has been granted a widow's pension of 15s. a week only, with no allowance for her two children under 16; and will he have this pension revised and the amount granted to which she is entitled?


As the cause of the late soldier's death could not be regarded as connected with service a full widow's pension could not be granted. The award referred to has been made under Article 15 of the Royal Warrant which does not provide for allowances for children. The widow has a right of appeal to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal against this decision which she may exercise at any time before the 19th August next through her Local War Pensions Committee.
