HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c213W
Mr. Wood

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he intends to make any change in the rate of pensions paid to officers' widows, in view of the fall in the purchasing power of money since their last increase over seven years ago.

Mr. Isaacs

I regret that in the present national circumstances it is not possible to increase the rates of pensions paid to these widows.
