§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will investigate the circumstances under which Mrs. Braybrook, of 56, Rosher Road, Stratford. has been refused allowance for the loss of her son, the late Corporal. William James Bray-brook, No. 67005 Yorkshire Regiment. whose death was admitted by the Ministry to be due to tuberculosis contracted during his War service?
§ Major TRYON
Mrs. Braybrook is only eligible for pension in respect of her son if she is wholly or partly incapable of self-support and is in pecuniary need. As she is already in receipt of a pension and allowances amounting to 10s. 2d. a week in respect of her late husband, the latter condition is not fulfilled, and a further award of pension is not, therefore, admissible.
