HC Deb 29 March 1928 vol 215 cc1323-4

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the Neostyle circular issued by the insurance department to widows whose husbands died between 4th January, 1925, and 2nd January, 1928, informing them that they are not eligible for the contributory pension between the ages of 65 and 70; and whether, seeing that they are eligible for the widow's pension until they reach the age of 70, then passing on to the old age pension, he will have the circular redrafted so that the widows may not be under the apprehension that they will be without pension during the period between the ages of 65 and 70?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Chamberlain)

I am not certain what circular the hon. Member has in mind, but if he will give me particulars I will look further into the matter.
