HC Deb 14 February 1946 vol 419 cc153-4W
Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of National Insurance if he is aware that supplementary pensioners who earn a few shillings a week by taking in a lodger at present have part of the lodger's payment deducted from their pension; and it he has yet arranged for earnings of this nature to be disregarded on the same basis as other earnings.

Mr. J. Griffiths

I would refer my hon. Friend to the replies given to the hon. Members for Wallsend (Mr. J. Mackay) and West Wolverhampton (Lieutenant H. Hughes) on 18th and 20th December respectively, of which I am sending her copies.
