HC Deb 17 February 1987 vol 110 c521W
Q105. Sir David Price

asked the Prime Minister whether she will consider increasing the age addition for those aged 80 years and over.

The Prime Minister

I have no plans to do so. However, from April 1988 a higher level of help will be available to pensioners aged 80 and over who are on low incomes through an automatic higher-rate premium in the new income support scheme.
