HC Deb 08 February 1934 vol 285 c1293
43. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Minister of Health whether he will introduce legislation to provide that the wife of an insured person shall be entitled to pension at the same time as her husband, providing she is not less than 55 years of age, and that not less than five years have elapsed since the marriage?


The financial and other difficulties involved in the proposal are such as to render it impracticable in present circumstances.
