§ 52. Mr. Shurmer
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has now reached a decision on the suggestion, put forward earlier this year by the hon. Member for Sparkbrook, that post-war credits should be paid to dependants of deceased persons on the date they would have been 60 or 65 years of age, respectively, had they lived.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
My right hon. Friend will consider this with other suggestions for payment of post-war credits when he frames his Budget proposals, but I cannot of course say now what the result of that consideration will be.
