HC Deb 28 April 1926 vol 194 c2052W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the orphan children of a man who died as the result of a war disability more than seven years after discharge are granted pension; and, if not, whether he will amend the Royal Warrant of January, 1924, so that the orphan children may have the same benefit as regards pension as is given to the children when the wife survives the husband?

Major TRYON:

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the provision made for this class of case in Articles 17A (2) and 17B (2) of the Royal Warrant of January, 1924.
