HC Deb 02 April 1957 vol 568 c31W
Mr. John McKay

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of the 8 million persons shown in Table 28 of the White Paper on National Income and Expenditure, 1955, as having incomes up to £250 are non-contributory pensioners and National Insurance retired pensioners; and how many of these 8 million are liable to pay contributions.

Mr. Birch

I regret that the composition of the 8 million incomes of up to £250 is not known.
