HC Deb 14 March 1950 vol 472 cc53-4W
99. Brigadier Peto

asked the Minister of National Insurance why the widow of Mr. A. E. Pettit, M.C., late regimental sergeant-major, Scots Guards, and employed as Library attendant, House of Lords, from 1924 to 1944, has received no pension to date despite the fact that he was compulsorily insured for widow's pension during that period and that the pension form was returned to her Department duly completed by the accountant of the House of Lords on 17th October, 1949, which was the same day it was received.

Dr. Summerskill

I am glad to say that Mrs. Pettit is now in receipt of her pension. I shall be writing to the hon. and gallant Member about this case as soon as possible.
