HC Deb 21 January 1924 vol 169 c537W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he can state under what power the Government is reducing any pension without giving the pensioner due notification and a right to appear before a tribunal; what steps, if any, are taken where a reassessment of a dependant pension is made to enable the pensioner to state a case; whether the wages books of the pre-War employers have been examined; who are the investigators employed; what is the scope of their investigation; and whether copies of the Report made can be supplied to the pensioner whose pension has been reduced?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on this subject on the 17th instant, in reply to the hon. Member for Middlesbrough West (Mr. T. Thomson).
