HC Deb 28 October 1912 vol 43 c49W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that many workmen over seventy years of age are unable to obtain employment in consequence of the age limit for health insurance being fixed at seventy; and, in view of the fact that a workman who cannot produce an insurance card is known to be over seventy and his chance of employment is reduced, if he proposes to take any action to remove this hardship?


I have no direct evidence of any such hardship, but I should be happy to consider any suggestions my hon. Friend can make.
