Colonel Sandeman Allen
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that, under Section 5 (2) of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1936, old age pensioners who have removed for safety to the Isle of Man are unable to draw their pensions in the Isle of Man; and will he bring in amending legislation forthwith?
§ Sir K. Wood
I am aware that Section 5 (2) of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1936, provides that a sum shall not be paid on account of an old age pension to any person unless that person is in Great Britain: I am afraid that I am 329W unable to hold out any hope of immediate amending legislation.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the Minister of Health what decisions have been arrived at by the local advisory committee on the question of high and low rents in connection with the Supplementary Pensions Regulations for the county of Monmouth?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I am asking the Assistance Board for the desired information and will send it to my hon. Friend as soon as it is available.
