§ MR. C. H. CORBETT (Sussex, East Grinstead)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether a woman whose son under compulsion from the guardians pays her Is. a week through the relieving officer is by this payment disqualified from receiving an old-age pension.
(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) My right hon. friend has asked me to reply to this Question. In the case put, the woman, as I understand, receives Is. from the relieving officer and the son repays the amount to the funds of the guardians. In such a case the woman, as I am advised, would be disqualified.
