HC Deb 22 February 1954 vol 524 cc3-4W
54. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance the number of persons in Cardiff who are in receipt of retirement pensions; and the number who are granted supplementation of their pension by the National Assistance Board.

Mr. Peake

Information about the number of retirement pensioners in particular localities is not available. On 15th December last the two National Assistance Board offices in Cardiff, which extend beyond the county borough boundary, were paying 7,948 regular weekly grants of National Assistance in supplementation of retirement pensions. In some cases the Assistance grant also covered the needs of a pensioner wife.
