§ 36. Dr. WATTS
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that many insured persons who wished to join the Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Act, 192;, Voluntary section, have been refused because they omitted to apply before 4th July, 1926; and if he will consider the question of extending the time limit?
I understand that a certain number of persons qualified to heroine Voluntary contributors failed to apply within the time normally allowed under the statutory Regulations. As to an extension of the time limit, I would refer to the answers given to questions by the hon. Members for Elland and South Mofton en the 25th November and the 2nd December.
