HC Deb 28 April 1927 vol 205 cc1029-30W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Pensions the cost to the nation for the work that is being done at the present in caring for orphans of officers and other ranks who lost their lives through the late War and the number of children, male and female, who are receiving such benefits?


The estimated expenditure of the Ministry in the current year on the maintenance, education and other provision for children of deceased officers and men, including children who are also motherless, will amount to £6,200,000. The total number of children thus provided for will be approximately 248,000.
