HC Deb 09 May 1983 vol 42 c210W
Mr. O'Halloran

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he has given further consideration to the question of free funerals for war pensioners; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Rossi

It is already the practice that the Department will, on request, arrange and pay for the funeral of a war pensioner who dies of his pensioned disablement.
