HC Deb 15 June 1948 vol 452 c23W
28. Lieut.-Colonel Clifton-Brown

asked the Minister of Pensions if he is yet in a position to announce any increase in the pensions being paid to widows and children of Service personnel, who gave their lives for their country.

Mr. Buchanan

Since the outbreak of the 1939 war, several increases have been made in the pensions and allowances of war widows with children and provision has been made for a rent allowance where the rent and rates exceed 8s. a week. I regret that I am not able to announce any further increases but I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that the rates of war pensions will be kept under review in the light of changing circumstances.
