§ 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?
