HC Deb 26 January 1998 vol 305 c103W
25. Mr. Timms

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what action the Government are taking to help the least well-off pensioners. [23076]

Mr. Denham

We are determined to get help to the million pensioners not claiming their entitlement to Income Support. We have commissioned research to investigate why they do not make a claim, and from April we will be running a number of pilot projects to find the best way of getting help to them.
