HC Deb 28 May 1924 vol 174 c447W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will investigate the circumstances attending the stoppage of the old age pension of Mrs. Pearson, 9, Forest Street, Forest Gate: and, as the pensioner is in great distress, will he remit any amount at present due to her and continue the payment of the pension?


Mrs. Pearson was overpaid a sum of old age pension money which, under Section 9 (2) of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1908, is a debt due, from her to the Crown, and is being recovered by withholding payment of her current old age pension. Having regard to the Circumstances in which the overpayment occurred, I am unable to authorise resumption of payment of the pension until the overpayment has been completely recovered.
