§ Mr. Houghton
asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that form P.F.87D sent to war widows last April by his Accountant General is unattractive, badly duplicated, and bears no date; and whether he will take steps to see that such a form is not used again.
The use of the neostyled form in question was a purely temporary arrangement and it was quickly replaced by a suitable printed form. I feel that the use of the neostyled form temporarily was justified for the purposes of informing widows with the least possible delay of their increased pensions.
The forms were headed "Date as postmark" to save the manpower otherwise necessary to date the forms.
