§ 4. Mr. Boardman
asked the Minister of National Insurance whether, in view of the increase in prices since old age pensions were fixed at the present level, he contemplates any increase or supplementation to these pensions to restore them in terms of goods to at least the level intended.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
Pensioners who are in need can apply for supplementation to the Assistance Board. The Board will be under duty to prepare and submit to me fresh draft regulations when the National Assistance Bill becomes law. The draft regulations will be subject to affirmative Resolution by both Houses.
