HC Deb 26 April 1951 vol 487 cc98-9W
92. Mr. W. G. Bennett

asked the Minister of National Insurance what pensions will be granted, under the proposed new regulations, to men aged 65 to 70 years of age starting work at weekly wages of £2, £2 10s., £3 and £3 10s., respectively.

Mr. B. Taylor

In so far as a pension granted to a man aged 65–70 on retirement is affected by earnings rules, it would in future only be reduced by the excess of net weekly earnings over £2. But the amount of the pension will depend, among other factors, on the date and age of retirement in the individual case.
