HC Deb 05 September 1940 vol 365 c35W
Sir W. Allen

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that many State pensioners, who were granted their pensions many years ago, and many of whom are debarred from old age pensions owing to the means test, are suffering hardship owing to the increased cost of living; and will he undertake to introduce legislation granting an increase of pension owing to that increased cost of living?

Sir K. Wood

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Evesham (Mr. De la Bère) on 6th August last.
