HC Deb 27 March 1953 vol 513 c117W
Mr. D. Griffiths

asked the Minister of National Insurance if he will consider doubling the rates of benefit for Coronation week to those in receipt of benefits under the National Insurance Acts, including unemployed.

Mr. Peake

I am unable to do this for reasons similar to those given in my statements following the Question regarding old age pensioners put to me by the hon. Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. Chetwynd) on 23rd March.
