HC Deb 03 April 1951 vol 486 c6W
Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the cost in the current year of lowering the age limit at which widows and spinsters receive the old age allowance, from 65 to 60 years.

Mr. Gaitskell

It is contrary to established practice to give information about the cost of changes in taxation so near the date of the Budget.
