HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1245
54. Mr. Tinker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered a resolution sent on to him from a mass meeting of old age pensioners at Atherton, Lancashire, calling upon the Government to raise the weekly pension from 10s. to 30s. and to lower the age to 60 years; and what provision can be made to meet this claim?

Sir K. Wood

I have considered the resolution referred to, but I cannot add to the reply given on 17th July by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health to my hon. Friend the Member for West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen).

Sir H. Williams

Does my right hon. Friend think it is possible to meet this claim unless people pay Income Tax on their overtime?
