§ 39. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Health the number of persons between 65 years of age and 70; and the estimated proportion of the same that would be able to obtain an old age pension under the existing income limit restrictions?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The number of persons in England and Wales between 65 and 70 years of age is estimated to be 1,029,056. My right hon. Friend is not aware of any 1813 basis upon which a trustworthy estimate such as is suggested in the second part of the question could be framed.
