§ 26. Mr. MATHERS
asked the Minister of Health whether he intends, in legislating for improvements in respect of pensions payable to blind persons, to remedy the hardship which is involved in the discontinuance of the old age and blind pension at the age of 70, thus reducing the income of a widow in this position from £1 to 10s. per week?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
I regret that I cannot at this stage make any statement anticipating the legislation which has been promised on this subject.
§ Mr. MATHERS
As this is an obvious injustice, does not the Minister agree that it should be remedied?
