HC Deb 03 June 1924 vol 174 c1086W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the latest estimate compiled by his Department of the cost of providing widows' pensions and allowances?


The cost would obviously depend on the amount of the pension and allowances and the number of persons brought within the scope of any scheme, and I cannot give any definite official estimate at the present time.
