HC Deb 14 December 1908 vol 198 cc1250-1

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the difficulty experienced by sub-committees in Ireland under the Old-Age Pensions Act, if he will state whether a person who, under medical advice and because of illness, goes to the workhouse infirmary, now generally termed district hospital, and stays there some time to avail of proper medical treatment but is unable to pay for it, is disqualified from receiving a pension if otherwise eligible.


The point raised in the Question was dealt with in my reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Kilkenny on the 9th instant, to which I do not think I can usefully add anything.
