HC Deb 04 July 2000 vol 353 c128W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects to publish the review of pensions for war widows. [128472]

Mr. Spellar

My Department is carrying out a major review of the Armed Forces Pension Scheme. This review is looking at all aspects of pensions for members of the armed forces and their dependants, including widows' pensions, and the question of paying widows' pension for life. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State continues to hope to make an announcement about the review during the summer. War widows' pensions are the responsibility of the DSS War Pensions Agency.
