HC Deb 14 March 1928 vol 214 cc1914-5
42. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that a large number of men entitled to unemployment benefit have been disqualified from drawing their pay in consequence of being eligible for old age pension, and that in consequence of the long delay experienced in obtaining the pension they have to apply to boards of guardians for relief; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


My right hon. Friend has no information to the effect stated in the question, but if the hon. Member will furnish him with particulars he will have them investigated.
