HC Deb 20 July 1977 vol 935 c633W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what are the circumstances in which a death grant may be paid; and if the family of a deceased person whose sole income was invalidity benefit can qualify.

Mr. Orme

The grant is payable for any death provided that the contribution and age conditions for it are satisfied; and I would expect that a person who had qualified for invalidity pension would satisfy those conditions. If, however, the hon. Member is concerned about a particular case perhaps he would care to write to me.
