HC Deb 03 March 1925 vol 181 cc277-8W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, when dealing with the matter of the revision of the legislation relating to old age pensions, he will consider the desirability of removing the disqualification of a pensioner who has received three months' infirmary treatment in a Poor Law institution and providing that the pension receivable by such pensioner be paid to the guardians of the union to which he is chargeable during the period of chargeability?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 12th February to similar questions by the hon. and gallant Member for Leicester South (Captain Waterhouse), and the hon. Member for the Bedwellty Division (Mr. C. Edwards).
