HC Deb 18 July 1929 vol 230 c652W

asked the Minister of Health whether, in investigating the problem of pensions for elderly workers, he will endeavour to secure that, in addition to national schemes, arrangements are worked out, either by industry or by factory, so as to secure a pension to workers of 35s. per week at;he age of 65?


While I welcome any arrangements made by employers to supplement the national pension scheme, I can hold out no hope of the introduction of legislation which would compel employers to establish supplementary schemes, which I gather is what the hon. Member suggests.
