HC Deb 03 March 1938 vol 332 c1304W
Mr. Orr-Ewing

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider amending Section 29 (1) of the Contributory Pensions Act, 1936, to enable claimants to obtain payment of widow's contributory pension from the date of the husband's death, instead of from a date three months prior to the claim being made?

Sir K. Wood

The provisions in the Act referred to were carefully considered by Parliament and I do not as at present advised think it desirable to make any alteration.
