HC Deb 08 December 1952 vol 509 c8W
80. Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether he will reconsider the peculiar needs and difficulties of recipients of the 10s. non-contributory pensions; and if he will consider increasing such pensions.

Mr. Peake

I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind the 10s. pension payable to certain widows whose husbands were insured under the repealed contributory pensions Acts. I would refer him to the reply given on 27th October to the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale).
