HC Deb 25 November 1964 vol 702 c200W
Mr. Allason

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what increase she proposes for the pension of childless war widows under 40 years of age, now at 20s. for a private's widow; and what comparison that increase will bear to the increase proposed for the 10s. widow.

Miss Herbison

None. Their circumstances are not comparable with those of the 10s. widows since they will all get full war widow's pension when they reach age 40.
