HC Deb 01 April 1889 vol 334 c1232
MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)

asked the Postmaster General whether he would consider the advisabilty of adopting some plan by which pensioners may be enabled to draw their pensions weekly or monthly through the machinery supplied by the Post Office?


The hon. Member does not specify the particular pensions to which he refers. As regards weekly pensions, I may say that some short time ago the Treasury expressed itself averse to the payment of pensions weekly which is necessarily a very expensive arrangement.
