§ 54. Mr. Murray
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now arrange that, when post-war credits are payable to widows, payment is made immediately after the husband's death.
§ Sir S. Cripps
If a widow is over 60 at the time of her husband's death, it is already the practice to pay her post-war credits as soon as the necessary formalities have been completed; if however the hon. Member is suggesting that post-war credits should be payable to widows under 60 the answer is that I cannot anticipate my Budget statement.
§ 59. Sir H. Williams
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider reducing progressively the age for repayment of post-war credits and also to arrange that they shall always be repaid to the estate of any deceased person.
§ 63. Mr. Arbuthnot
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to ensure the immediate payment of post-war credits to executors of deceased persons in order to enable them to wind up the estates concerned and relieve 40W widows and dependants of anxiety and legal costs.
§ 67. Brigadier Medlicott
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can make a statement as to a possible further repayment of post-war credits.
§ Mr. de Chair
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much it would cost to repay the outstanding post-war credits now and in full.
