HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 c1962W

asked the Minister of Health, seeing that an insured person in a mental institution may receive sick and disablement benefit under national health insurance and that, prior to January, 1926, benefit was payable until the age of 70, whether any compensation can be paid to insured persons in mental institutions of the age of 65 who may not receive the old age pension, even though paying patients, and whose disablement benefit ceases on their 65th birthday?


The answer is in the negatives, but the point has been noted for consideration when amending legislation is contemplated.
