HC Deb 19 April 1950 vol 474 c25W
Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of National Insurance how many men over 65 years of age and women over 60 years of age are continuing in employment and contributing to an increased old-age pension.

Dr. Summerskill

The insured persons concerned are those who have attained pensionable age since 5th July, 1948. They are under no obligation to notify my Department until they retire and claim a pension. It is therefore difficult to arrive at the precise number who remain at work and contribute for an increased pension, but I hope shortly to be able to give a provisional estimate.
