asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, with a view to giving relief to those persons who are only entitled to an old age pension at 70, subject to the means inquiry as provided under the Old Age Pensions Acts, 1908 to 1924, he will introduce the necessary legislation to amend paragraph (1) of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1924, by increasing the amount which may be deducted from unearned income from £39 to £52 per annum?
