HC Deb 18 April 1929 vol 227 cc424-5W
Brigadier-General WRIGHT

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in the case of pensioned widows, their sons, though attaining the age of 16, can receive assistance in respect of apprenticeship training from any funds available for Ministerial disposal and on what terms?


Allowances for children normally cease at the age of 16, but in the case of a child who, on reaching that age, is an apprentice in receipt of norminal wages only, the allowance may, under the provisions of the Royal Warrants, be extended for a period. In exceptional cases I am also able to give assistance from small voluntary funds at my disposal for the same object.
