§ 2. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that, as a result of men being deprived of their insurance cards on reaching the age of 65 years they are compelled to produce birth certificates to prospective employers; and whether he will consider the propriety of permitting these insured persons to retain their cards?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Henry Betterton)
Employed persons on attaining 65 are not deprived of their 1276 Unemployment Insurance books; they get a special form of book, which is necessary for the purpose of the reduced contributions which then become payable. I am not quite sure what the difficulty is which the hon. Member has in mind, but, if he will be good enough to communicate with me, I will go into it.
