HC Deb 05 May 1952 vol 500 c2W
Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of National Insurance to what extent, under his regulations, widows' pensions are taken into account in the assessment of unemployment benefit.

Mr. Peake

Unemployment benefit is not normally payable in addition to widows' benefits under the National Insurance Act, but a widow entitled to both may receive the greater of the two benefits.
