§ Captain WEDGWOOD BENN
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether a woman of seventy-five years of age who is drawing a Government pension of 12s. 6d. per week on account of her only son, killed in action, and thereby has a maximum income exceeding£31 10s., is compelled to relinquish her old age pension?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
Dependants' pensions are "means" within the meaning of Section 2 (1) of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1911, and in the case referred to, therefore, the pensioner ceases to be entitled to an old age pension.
