HC Deb 28 June 1972 vol 839 cc381-2W
Mr. Neave

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he will introduce legislation to pay a pension to widows of post-retirement marriages throughout the public services, armed forces, police and fire service.

Mr. Dean

In the context of our proposals in "Strategy for Pensions", we still have under consideration the question whether, as a condition for exempting their members from the State reserve scheme, occupational schemes should be required to give widowhood cover for post-retirement marriages.
