§ Mr. F. ROBERTS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has received protests against the provisions of the Old Age Pensions Act whereby people who have been thrifty are barred from receiving the full benefit of the State pension; and whether he can state if it is the intention of the Government to take any action to remove the disabilities associated with old age pensions?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In reply to the second part I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to a similar question by the hon. Member for the Consett Division of Durham (Mr. A. Williams) yesterday.
