§ 49. Mr. ROLAND ROBINSON
asked the Minister of Health whether he is now in a position to state the conditions on which the pensions of the contributory pensions scheme will be extended to shopkeepers, clerks and other black-coated workers, whose income does not exceed a certain limit, in respect of contributions on a voluntary basis?
§ Sir K. WOOD
I am not in a position to add anything to the statement which I made on this subject on 10th December last. I cannot furnish the details of the scheme in advance of the presentation of the necessary Bill.
§ Mr. ROBINSON
Will my right hon. Friend undertake to press forward that scheme at the earliest possible moment?
