HC Deb 07 April 1952 vol 498 cc181-2W
87. Captain Ryder

asked the Minister of National Insurance if he will take early action to amend the present regulations regarding the time limit for claiming benefit, to permit those suffering from loss of memory or others with a good cause to claim benefits due to them after the time limit has expired.

90. Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the Minister of National Insurance what action he proposes to take to implement the recommendations of the National Insurance Advisory Committee as to the time limits for claiming benefits.

Mr. Peake

I would refer my hon. Friends to the replies I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, South-West (Mr. Powell), and my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Angus, South (Captain Duncan), on 31st March. The regulations already provide for the extension of the time limits where there was good cause for delay.
