§ Mr. TASKER
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the neglect formally to acknowledge the receipt of a claim for old age pension may lead to unnecessary anxiety to the claimant; and will he consider the advisability of acknowledging the receipt of the claim, as is the custom in other Government Departments?
I have been asked to reply. I would refer my hon. Friend to my answer on the 24th April last to a question by the hon. Member for Poplar South (Mr. March) on this subject.
