HC Deb 12 March 1951 vol 485 c107W
27. Mr. Howard

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether she will consider making it possible for death grants to be paid in respect of those old persons who are not covered by the National Insurance Act, 1946, in view of the fact that the sum so expended would be a diminishing one.

Dr. Summerskill

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on this subject to the hon. Member for Swindon (Mr. T. Reid) on 4th July last. of which I am sending him a copy.
