HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 c1565W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the increasing cost of living, he will say what the arrangements have been made to enable the concessions under Cd. 8320, or other concessions, to apply to applicants for old age pensions, seeing that at the present time war bonuses and additional help from charitable sources and organisations granted to prospective applicants for old age pensions to enable them to live is being assessed as income, and thus disentitles them to, or reduces, the old age pension?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to a question in identical terms asked by the hon. Member for East Essex on the 16th instant.
