HC Deb 18 July 1974 vol 877 c215W
30. Mr. Silvester

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will support an application to raise the preserved rate police widow's pension in respect of those widows whose former husbands were unable to contribute to the pension scheme introduced in 1956.

Dr. Summerskill

My right hon. Friend does not consider that there are grounds for singling out these pensions for special increases in addition to the cost of living increases to which they are already subject.
