HC Deb 17 July 1940 vol 363 cc194-5
15. Mr. James Hall

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that there are some post offices still without a supply of supplementary pension forms, and will he have arrangements made for the distribution of forms to all post offices?

16. Mr. T. Smith

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the complaints that application forms for supplementary old age pensions are unobtainable at many post offices; and whether steps will be taken to remedy this matter?

The Postmaster-General (Mr. W. S. Morrison)

Supplementary pension forms were made available on 10th June at all post offices, and, although an unexpectedly large initial demand temporarily exhausted some local stocks, supplies of the forms to meet all requirements are available and any shortage which may occur at a particular post office can be immediately made good.
