HC Deb 11 March 1935 vol 299 c30W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that Mary Ann Woodcock, The Grange, Newton Burgoland, daughter of the late 2nd A.M., No. 104,257, Royal Air Force, who died on 21st May, 1924, is a confirmed invalid, suffering from tuberculosis; and whether, having regard to this fact, he will look into the case with a view to the re-issue of the war orphan's allowance which ceased in January, 1932?


The reasons which preclude me from authorising a re-issue of the allowance, which ceased when the young person referred to reached the age of 21 years, are explained in the reply which I gave on 5th February to the hon. Members for Deritend (Mr. Crooke) and Rhondda, East, (Mr. Mainwaring), of which I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy.
