HC Deb 08 May 1963 vol 677 cc75-6W
Mr. Wade

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he will introduce legislation to extend the crediting of National Insurance contributions to all full-time students at universities and other institutions of further education, in the same way as full-time students up to the age of 18 are already credited.

Mr. N. Macpherson

No. It would not be justifiable to subsidise the future benefits of such students out of contributions compulsorily paid by other contributors.
