§ 37. Sir C. Edwards
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has considered the letter from the Clerk of the Risca Council asking that a flat-rate pension, irrespective of means test, should be paid to all parents who have had the misfortune to lose sons or daughters whilst serving in His Majesty's forces; and what was his reply.
§ The Minister of Pensions (Sir Walter Womersley)
It has not been possible in the time available to trace the letter referred to by my hon. Friend. I would, however, refer him to the Debate on War Pensions on the 7th July in the course of which the Government's policy on a flat-rate pension for parents was fully explained.
