HC Deb 28 November 1922 vol 159 c514W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his Department will consider the case of ex-service men who, being inmates of mental hospitals, have consequently to render the major portion or all of their pensions to the hospital authorities to the privation of their parents, who are often wholly or in part dependent upon their son's earnings; and whether a portion of such pension could be transferred to such parents who, through age and physical disabilities, are unable to fully earn their livelihood?


Provision already exists in these cases for the grant of an allowance, not exceeding 14s. a week, to dependent parents who are infirm and in need.
