§ Sir HARRY VERNEY
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the case of Mrs. Elizabeth Pitkin, of Bletchley, who became entitled to an old age pension of 5s. per week on 18th October, 1911; whether, owing to delay in the valuation of certain property in which Mrs. Pitkin had an interest, her pension was not paid for nineteen weeks from this date; and whether it is proposed to grant to Mrs. Pitkin the arrears due to her, amounting to £4 15s.?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
My attention has not previously been drawn to this case, and I have not yet had time to ascertain the full facts. I will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as the necessary inquiries have been completed.
