HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 c2548

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in order to reduce the amount of inconvenience to which men are put by their draft books not being available at Post Offices, he has decided to extend the period for which pensioners ring papers are current; and, if so, will he state when the extended period of issue is likely to be brought into force?


An extension of the currency of the ring paper would not solve the difficulty which the hon. Member has in mind, but if he alludes to the period of validity of the life certificate, I would refer him to the answer which I have given to-day to the hon. Member for Stourbridge.
