HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c519W
Mr. Leach

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any moneys, other than those provided by the general taxpayer, are used to finance the Old Age Pensions Act of 1908; and, if so, from what sources are such moneys provided?

Sir J. Simon

The answer is in the negative. The whole of the money required to provide pensions over 70 is provided by the Exchequer under the Old Age Pension Vote (Class V, Vote 6).
