HC Deb 15 December 1908 vol 198 cc1580-1

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether his Department can take steps to ensure support for persons who are claiming pensions but who, according to information given to the House, have been disqualified for an old-age pension contrary to the stated intention when the disqualification sections of the Act were being framed.


I am not sure what the cases are to which my hon. friend refers, but the reply to the Question must be in the negative. Claimants who are found to be disqualified of course remain in the same position as they would have been if the Act had not passed.
