HC Deb 30 November 1933 vol 283 c1062W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been called to the protest of the Walsall War Pensions Committee against the reduction in the dependants' allowances paid to the father and mother of Seaman Carless who fell in action at Heligoland Bight, and whose bravery was recognised by the award of the Victoria Cross posthumously; and whether he will restore the allowances to the maximum, and thus prevent the parents going to the Poor Law?


I am making inquiries into the facts of this case, and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
