HC Deb 04 August 1924 vol 176 c2518
61. Mr. F. GOULD

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider the advisability of issuing, in a simple and concise form, a statement of the changes effected by the passing of the amended Old Age Pensions Bill?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. William Graham)

As my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer informed the hon. Member for Barrow-in-Furness on the 29th July, a leaflet explaining the effect of the Old Age Pensions Bill and how to claim an old age pension will be available at Post Offices and Customs and Excise Offices as soon as possible after the Bill has become law. Another leaflet, similarly explaining the effect of the Bill and how to apply for an increase of pension, will be sent to all existing pensioners whose rate of pension is less than the maximum of 10s. a week, together with a form of application for an increase of pension.
