HC Deb 04 April 1910 vol 16 cc173-4W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in the case of person who had been in receipt of an old age pension, but was subsequently deprived of it on account of decision that he was not seventy years of age according to the Census Returns, when such person actually reaches that age and obtains the pension, he is liable to have deducted from his pension-any portion of the amount paid to him by mistake?


In the case described there is debt due to the Crown under Section 9 (2) of the Old Age Pensions Act, and the amount would be recovered, in default of direct repayment in cash, by suspending payment of the pension granted on the claimant reaching the statutory age until the debt is liquidated.
