§ 77. Mr. J. Lewis
asked the Minister of Pensions what would be the cost to the Treasury if the principle of Fit for Service Fit for Pension was recognised; and what would be the cost if the benefit of the doubt were allowed to the applicant.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
No reliable estimate can be made of the cost of accepting the principle of Fit for Service, Fit for Pension, but it would be very substantial. With regard to the second part of the Question, the benefit of any reasonable doubt is already given to an applicant for pension.
