HC Deb 01 December 1937 vol 329 c2089W
Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider a general revision of the Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Pensions Acts, with a. view to removing the more glaring anomalies and hardships which the administration of the Acts has revealed?

Mr. Bernays

No, Sir. My right hon. Friend does not consider there are sufficient grounds for a general revision of the Acts.

Mr. Groves

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why W. Shaw, 19, Dunmow Road, Stratford, E.15, has not been accepted as eligible to receive an old age pension?

Sir K. Wood

I have been asked to reply. Mr. Shaw's claim for an old age pension under the Contributory Pensions Act failed because he ceased to be an insured person before he attained, the age of 65.
