§ 55. Mr. MAGNAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is the intention of the Government to give to the wives of insured men, who have reached the age of 65 years and qualified for old age contributory pensions, pensions for themselves, provided such wives are beyond the age of 60 years and satisfy the marriage requirements already incorporated in the Widows', Orphans', and Old Age Contributory Pensions Act?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 9th December, 1935, to the hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker).
§ 75. Mr. OLIVER
asked the Minister of Health the approximate number of married couples living together where the man only is in receipt of a contributory old age pension?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
I regret that the information asked for by the hon. Member is not available.
§ Mr. OLIVER
Will the hon. Gentleman undertake to get this information in view of the fact that this question appears from time to time on the Order Paper, showing clearly that it is a grievance which requires attention?
