HC Deb 17 July 1923 vol 166 c2065W

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will consider the case of Mrs. Farelly, 74, Donnisthorpe Street, Bradford, widow of ex-Private James Farelly, late of the Scots Guards, No. 10,832, who enlisted 13th September, 1914, and was discharged wounded in the lung 22nd October, 1915, 100 per cent. disability pension, developing consumption through his wound, which ultimately caused his death from hæmorrhage 30th April last, with a view to granting her a compassionate allowance towards the funeral expenses of £25?


The usual funeral grant of £7 10s. has been paid in this case, and I regret that I am unable to agree to any further grant being made.
