HC Deb 12 April 1967 vol 744 c181W
1. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether, as soon as the resources are available, he will extend the benefits of the forces' family pensions scheme to the widows of soldiers who gave colour service before 1st September, 1950.

Mr. Boyden

An extension would have repercussions for other widows of public servants who do not have pensions. The implications would need examination at the time.
