59. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the Minister of Health if he has consulted the Law Officers of the Crown as to the legality of the claim of widows of insured persons whose husbands died prior to 4th January, 1920, to be paid old age pensions at 65 on or after 2nd January, 1928?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
The answer is in the negative. I would point out that the classes of persons entitled, under the Contributory Pensions Act, 1925, to old age pensions at 65, are clearly set out in Section 7 of the Act.
