HC Deb 01 November 1954 vol 532 c3W
34. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he will inquire into the case of a constituent whose name has already been sent to him, who on account of his having to accept premature superannuation from the Civil Service, partly through a 1914–18 war disability, after serving a period of 40 years, is now living with his wife on a Civil Service pension which is less than the grant normally made to persons who are entirely dependent on National Assistance; and as National Assistance has now been refused, if he will take steps to have this man's pension supplemented by other means.

Mr. Peake

My inquiries into the circumstances of this case are not yet complete but I will write to my hon. Friend in the course of the next few days.
