HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1410W
Lady Apsley

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will state the procedure which is adopted when a parent applies for a pension in respect of the death in action of a son or daughter; and by whom inquiries as to the means of the said parent are made.

Sir W. Womersley

Application forms are supplied to the parent and more often than not the information given on them is adequate. If further details are necessary they are obtained either by letter or on a personal visit by a member of my staff, who has instructions to make inquiries in a sympathetic and tactful manner.
