§ Lord Balniel
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance when she expects to receive the report of the National Assistance Board on its study of the problems of old people.
§ Miss Herbison
The study is an inquiry into the circumstances of retirement pensioners which my Ministry undertook in co-operation with the National Assistance Board. I expect to have some preliminary results quite soon but the full findings, which are being analysed by computer, will not be available until the autumn.
