HC Deb 20 May 1957 vol 570 c58W
39. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he is aware of the further hardships suffered by old-age pensioners owing to the increased cost of living and the disparities between the incomes of old-age pensioners and other citizens; and if he will now take steps to make some improvement in the rate of old-age pensions.

Miss Pitt:

I would refer the hon. and learned Member to what my right hon. Friend said on this question during the debate on 25th February.
