HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 cc1311-2W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the obvious inadequacy of the present old age pension of 7s. 6d. per week, and of the legal inability of boards of guardians to grant additional relief, he will take steps to bring the allowance to a figure more in accord with the present high cost of living?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by me on the 30th ultimo to the hon. Member for Morpeth.
