HC Deb 16 July 1962 vol 663 cc8-9W
Mr. MacDermot

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider amending the National Assistance (Charges for Accommodation) Regulations, 1955, so as to ensure that old-age pensioners who have earned an increment to their basic pension, either by working beyond retirement age or by way of graduated pension, should not be deprived of the whole of that increment when they occupy Part III accommodation under the National Assistance Act, 1948; and what would be the estimated cost of amending these Regulations so as to ensure that such pensioners were able to retain 20 per cent. of that increment.

Mr. Powell

No. No estimate of cost can be made.
