Mr. J. MUIR
asked the Minister of Pensions whether any deductions are made from the pensions of children of deceased sailors and soldiers in those cases where the mother has re-married a diabled man, and the step-father and his children are in receipt of treatment allowances?
§ Major TRYON
No deductions are made from the pensions of the children in such cases. The amount paid in pension and treatment allowances is never less than the amount the step-father would receive as treatment allowances were the stepchildren his own.
