HC Deb 12 July 1965 vol 716 cc18-9
16. Mr. Derek Page

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what proportion of retired persons do not receive the State retirement pension in King's Lynn, Norfolk and the United Kingdom, respectively.

Mr. Norman Pentland

I regret that the information requested is not available, but it is estimated that of all people now over minimum pension age rather more than 5½ per cent. have no present or prospective right to retirement pension.

Mr. Page

Will my hon. Friend bear in mind the eagerness with which my constituents look forward to the implementation of the guaranteed minimum income?

Mr. Pentland

Yes, Sir.
