HC Deb 10 May 1939 vol 347 c491W
Mr. Pilkington

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether any change is now to be made in the age at which marriage allowances are paid in the three Services?

Captain Crookshank

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister in this House on 4th May. The age of entitlement to family allowance in the Regular and Auxiliary Forces will be reduced to 20 from a date later in the year which will be announced.
