HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 c765
49. Mr. SWAN

asked the Prime Minister if he will endeavour to amend the Old Age Pensions Act so as to enable boards of guardians to be empowered to grant outdoor relief to the old age pensioners who have no other source of in come apart from the pension, such relief not to disqualify the recipient from continuing to receive the old age pension?


I can only refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to him on the 26th instant.


How are the old people to live on their pensions without some assistance, in view of the high cost of living?
