HC Deb 25 March 1975 vol 889 cc76-7W
28. Mr. David James

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she will issue old-age passes to those who, for one reason or another, are not eligible for the retirement pension, to enable them to receive reduced transport fares and other concessions and only available to pensioners.

Mr. Alec Jones:

No. I am not satisfied that the benefits would be commensurate with the considerable costs involved.
