HC Deb 22 October 1953 vol 518 c281W
68. Mr. A. J. Irvine

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the age of the majority of those affected, he will take steps to hasten the proposed introduction of legislation authorising an increase in the pensions of certain widows of former members of the Royal Irish Constabulary.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

The hon. Member may rest assured that there will be no avoidable delay in the preparation of the Bill.
