HC Deb 06 October 1942 vol 383 cc1091-2W
Mr. Glenvil Hall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is yet in a position to state his proposals for increasing the pensions given to widows and the allowances made in respect of young children?

Sir K. Wood

No, Sir. This matter is proceeding and as my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour has stated, it will be considered in the light of the report of Sir William Beveridge in the next Session of Parliament.
