HC Deb 08 May 1952 vol 500 c70W
Mr. J. T. Price

asked the Minister of National Insurance the exact pension rights under his regulations of a blind woman insured in her own right; and how far the receipt of retirement pension by her husband will modify the pension payable to her in any way.

Mr. Peake

A blind woman insured in her own right may qualify for a retirement pension under the National Insurance Scheme at age 60 in the same way as any other insured woman. This pension is not affected by the receipt of a retirement pension by her husband. If the hon. Member has an individual case in mind, perhaps he will let me have particulars.
