§ Sir R. ASKE
asked the Minister of Health whether having regard to the recent decision of the House of Lords to the effect that wounds pensions and national health insurance benefits are to be disregarded in the case of all applicants for public assistance, he will notify the public assistance authorities in England to the effect that that decision applies to cases within their jurisdiction?
§ Sir K. WOOD
As at present advised, I hardly think that any general notification is necessary. But I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind.
