War Widows' Pension

EDM number 187 in 2014-15, proposed by Julian Brazier on 26/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces, Pensions, Sickness, disability and carers' benefits and Veterans.

That this House is deeply concerned about the anomaly whereby war widows awarded a pension between 31 March 1973 and 5 April 2005 lose their entitlement if they co-habit or re-marry, whereas those widowed before and after those dates do not; and calls on the Government to rectify this unfair discrimination, affecting some 4,000 widows, by allowing all of them to keep their pensions for life, as advocated by the War Widows' Association of Great Britain.

This motion has been signed by a total of 69 MPs.
