HC Deb 10 November 1919 vol 121 cc44-5

asked the Prime Minister whether, when reviewing the Old Age Pensions Act, he will consider the advisability of altering the present system which takes into account benefits winch the pensioner may receive from a friendly society or other provident organisation, thus penalising those who, from their own earnings, have endeavoured to make provision for old age as against the thriftless and improvident who at the qualifying age receive the full amount of pension?


This question will be considered in connection with the Report of the Committee on Old Age Pensions
