§ 52. Sir Ian Fraser
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will extend the old persons tobacco concession to blind persons who receive their non-contributory old age pension at an earlier age than the normal.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
This is already the case. Any blind person who is an habitual smoker and is in possession of a pension order book entitling him to a non-contributory pension under the Old Age Pensions Act, 1936, may apply for Tobacco Duty relief.
