HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 c262W
140. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of National Insurance to give an estimate of what it would cost to give retirement pensions at 58 years of age to spinsters who feel they must retire at that age.

Mr. Turton

The hon. Member's suggestion involves so many unknown factors that it is not really possible to give an estimate of what the cost would be if it were adopted.
