§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Health whether he will inquire as to why the pension under the contributory scheme is not being paid to Mrs. Susan E. Evans, 101, Mayer Road, Stratford, case No. O 5,397,181?
Sir H. YOUNG
Mrs. Evans has now been advised that an old age pension has been awarded to her with effect from the 17th January last, and the necessary papers to enable her to obtain payment from that date have been issued. The delay in reaching a decision was due to difficulty in establishing Mrs. Evans' age.
