HC Deb 12 December 1960 vol 632 cc10-1W
88. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many Service widows are drawing special education grants for their children and what steps are being taken to notify them of the increased grant.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

About 7,600. Those widows found eligible for an increased grant on review will be notified individually in due course. No application will be necessary, but publicity will be given so that a claim can also be made by any widow who has not received notification but considers herself eligible for an increase.
