HC Deb 23 February 1921 vol 138 cc977-8W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider issuing an order or introducing legislation abolishing the disqualifications attached to the payment of old age pensions, so that the principle of universal pensions be enacted, to enable applicants for and recipients of old age pensions to derive the full benefit of their thrift and personal provision for old age, and to receive assistance from friends, employers, organisations, etc., without reduction of, or disentitlement to, the old age pension?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by me to the hon. and gallant Member for the Buckingham Division (Captain Bowyer) on Monday.
