§ 24. Mr. Wade
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he will introduce legislation to enable those persons who have been discharged from employment as a result of disabilities caused by their work and who have been unable to keen up their National Insurance contributions to draw the normal retirement pension at the age of 65 years.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
No. There is already provision under which contributions can be credited during incapacity for work or registered unemployment.
