§ 12. Mr. Tinker
asked the Minister of Health what steps are being taken to place those in receipt of old age pensions on a basis to meet the continued rise in the cost of living, as the present value of 10s. is several shillings below what it was when the war started?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to a Question on this subject asked by my hon. Friend the Member for West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen) on 17th July.
§ Mr. Tinker
I have seen that reply. What I was asking the Minister was whether he can see his way to do something for these people in view of the cost of living?
