§ 30. Mr. T. WILLIAMS (for Mr. PRICE)
asked the Minister of Health how many complaints by persons living in London, Durham, and Yorkshire have, been made to him of the withdrawal of pension under the Blind Persons Act, though they are unable to earn a livelihood owing to defective vision?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
My right hon. Friend assumes that the hon. Member has in mind primarily appeals under the Old Age Pensions Acts. He regrets that the information for which the hon. Member asks could not be obtained except at a cost of time and labour which my right hon. Friend would not be justified in authorising in present financial circumstances.
