HC Deb 30 January 1940 vol 356 c978
71. Mr. Pethick-Lawrence

asked the Minister of Health whether, under the new scheme for old age pensions, the Excise officers will continue to perform their existing function with regard to non-contributory pensions; and who will deal with the applications of those pensioners for supplementary pensions?

The Minister of Health (Mr. Elliot)

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part I must ask the right hon. Member to await the terms of the Bill.
