HC Deb 24 February 1948 vol 447 cc323-4W
102. Wing-Commander Hulbert

asked the Minister of Pensions whether a war widow who is in receipt of a pension, emigrating to the Dominions, will continue to receive her pension; and whether it will be paid in the currency of the Dominion concerned.

Mr. Buchanan

A war widow emigrating to a Dominion will normally continue to receive her pension: but if the place of emigration is Canada or Newfoundland, which are outside the sterling area, payment is subject to the Exchange Control Regulations. Payment is usually made in the local currency equivalent of the sterling award.
