HC Deb 20 October 1976 vol 917 c483W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the Government have taken any decision on making changes to the rights of men over 60 years of age to claim unemployment benefit if they have occupational pensions; if he will publish the representations he has had on this matter; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Orme

I would ask the hon. Gentleman to await the presentation of our detailed proposals to Parliament in due course. In formulating these we are taking note of the points made in the representations which we have received, of which there have been a substantial number from organisations representing employers, employees and occupational pensioners, from individual trade unions and from private individuals.
