asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that there is considerable delay in the Forest of Dean in the granting of old age pensions; that there are now cases where the husband died four months ago and pension has not been received, thus necessitating that the applicant has, in the meantime, to apply for public assistance; and whether he will look into the matter with a view to a remedy?

I am not aware that the position is as stated in the first part of the question but if the hon. Member will let me have particulars of specific cases I will certainly look into the matter.
