HC Deb 20 April 1926 vol 194 c1043W

asked the Minister of Health if he will inquire into the circumstances attending the reduction of the old age pension to Mr. J. Hubbard, 169, Leyton Road, Stratford, No. 1,317, on the ground that he has been working for 10 weeks as watchman at£3 weekly; and whether he is aware that the West Ham Local Pensions Committee decided, after examination of the case on 31st March, that the man was still entitled to his full pension?


The question of the rate of pension to which Mr. Hubbard is entitled is now before my Department on an appeal made by the pension officer against the decision of the Local Pensions Committee and I will carefully inquire into the circumstances before giving my decision.
