HC Deb 07 June 1945 vol 411 c1099W
Major Nield

asked the Minister of Pensions, if, in view of representations made to him, he now proposes to recommend the award, without needs test, of pensions to parents whose sons made voluntry allotments during their life time.

Sir W. Womersley

After full consideration the Government decided against the award of pensions to parents irrespective of their circumstances or of need, and I know of no ground on which to recommend that this decision should be altered.
