Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Pensions – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 22nd July 1952.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Pensions what revision is to be made in the basis of need on which parents' pensions in respect of deceased Service men are calculated.
Owing to certain administrative difficulties, which I hope will soon be overcome, I regret that I am not yet in a position to make a statement.
Does that answer mean that the Minister can give an assurance that there will be some increase in the scale for these very deserving pensioners within the not too distant future?
I should like to assure the hon. and gallant Gentleman that I realise the need, and that I am going to make a move at the earliest moment that I can do so effectively.
