HC Deb 12 March 1947 vol 434 c189W
65. Mr. Douglas Marshall

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, since provision was made under the Appendix to the Navy List, page 93, paragraph 5 (f), for widows' pensions, under certain circumstances granted prior to 17th December, 1929, to cover the period of the first world war, he will consider reintroducing these measures for retired officers re-employed in the second world war.

Mr. Dugdale

Yes, Sir. Consideration will be given to introducing some arrangement under which the widows of such officers may qualify for the award of pensions.
