HC Deb 24 March 1943 vol 387 c1640W
Mr. Tinker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the resolution sent to him by the Leigh Old Age Pensioners' Association asking for an increase of 5s. per week on the basic rate of all those old age pensioners who are not in employment; and will he make a statement?

Sir K. Wood

As my hon. Friend is no doubt aware, this matter is now under examination in connection with the Beveridge Report.
