HC Deb 24 June 1927 vol 207 c2196W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in the granting of pensions to war orphans, it is the practice to base the amount of the pensions solely upon the exclusive needs of the war orphans, or whether any allowance is made for the part maintenance of any other member of the household?


Pensions in the case of orphans are granted in all cases at the specific uniform rates laid down by the Royal Warrants, and are not determined in amount by considerations as to the circumstances of individual cases.
