HC Deb 15 April 1937 vol 322 cc1176-7
59. Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Minister of Health when he anticipates being able to introduce the promised Bill to amend the Blind Persons Act, 1920, by making it compulsory on county councils to administer relief to the blind under the Act instead of through public assistance; and also when it is intended to introduce the promised Bill to give old age pensions to the blind at the age of 40?

Sir K. Wood

I regret that I am not in a position to add to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Wallsend (Miss Ward) on 8th March last.
