HC Deb 24 February 1964 vol 690 cc22-3W
91. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many widows in the area of the Accrington National Insurance office are receiving pension at the rate of 10s. per week; and how many of them are paying 9s. 8d., 13s 2d., or 10s. per week for their National Insurance stamps.

Mrs. Thatcher

I regret that the information is not available, but I would remind the hon. Member that the 10s. widow paying National Insurance contributions still has 10s. a week more than the widow with no pension, since the liability for contributions applies equally to both.
