HC Deb 25 June 1936 vol 313 c1976W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he has considered the resolution passed by the Ripley Pension Committee with respect to amending the Old Age Pensions Act, so as to increase the maximum allowance of income to people of 70 years of age and to reduce the yearly value of the capital value of property consistent with the fall in the rate of interest generally; and whether he will consider removing these and other minor pensions anomalies?


I have received and considered a number of resolutions by Old Age Pensions Committees on the lines set out in the question. I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 14th May to the hon. Members for West Leyton (Mr. Sorensen) and Sedgefield (Mr. Leslie).
