HC Deb 14 October 1946 vol 427 cc143-4W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether he is aware that an old age pensioner after calling at Kettering General Post Office on 27th September and 4th October for her new pension book was told that it had not arrived and was refused her pension; whether new pension books are now available at that post office, or whether he proposes to expedite their issue.

Mr. Steele

If my hon. Friend will furnish the full name and address of the pensioner and her pension number, I will have inquiries made and will communicate with him as soon as possible. With regard to the last part of the Question the issue of pension order books at the increased rates for the whole country was substantially completed before 4th October.
