HC Deb 13 May 1941 vol 371 c1099W
Mr. Bellenger

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will consider granting a pension on the lowest grade of the commissioned ranks scale to widows of soldiers who die while undergoing training at an officer cadet training unit?

Sir W. Womersley

Pensions according to commissioned rank are based on the principle of recognising responsibilities actually borne during the lifetime of deceased officers, and I have no power to depart from this principle.
