HC Deb 10 May 1934 vol 289 cc1244-5
35. Mr. NORTH

asked the Minister of Health the number of cases in which old age pensions have been refused to applicants with 10 or more years' contributions on the grounds that a break has occurred during the period of insurance?


I regret that I am not in possession of any statistics on the point raised in the question. I would point out that 10 years have not yet elapsed since pensions contributions first began to be payable.
