HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 cc206-7W
81. Mr. Worsley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will ensure that reissued pension books are always available during the first week of entitlement.

Mr. Pentland

In the Department's arrangements for dealing with order-books emphasis is laid on the need to ensure speedy issue so that the pensioner is not left without any pension to which he is entitled. I am not aware that any general difficulty arises but if the hon. Member has any particular case in mind perhaps he will write to me.
