§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Pensions if he has issued any instructions affecting the payment of an allowance in respect to the wife of a man who, by reason of his employment taking him so far from his home, cannot meanwhile reside at his home other than at weekends; and whether he will see that any such pensioners who are compelled to reside temporarily from their homes owing to employment will not be penalised?
§ Major TRYON
No distinction as regards the payment of the allowance in question is, or has ever been, made between men whose circumstances are such as stated by the hon. Member and those who live continuously at home.
