HC Deb 11 April 1935 vol 300 cc1321-2
30. Mr. MANDER

asked the Minister of Health how many rejections took place of applications for old age contributory pensions at 65 owing to their unemployment record during 1932, 1933, and 1934?


No person who had been insured for four years and had paid 160 contributions lost his right to an old age pension during the years specified by reason of prolonged unemployment. The number of persons whose claims failed because they did not possess these qualifications is not known, but must have been very small.
