asked the Minister of National Insurance how the date of entry into old age pensions insurance for the purposes set out in her leaflet CP 480 is determined; and what is the statutory or other authority for such definition.

Under the Contributory Pensions Acts the date of entry into old age insurance is the same for all old age pension purposes. It is the commencing date of the period of insurance which is current when pensionable age is reached. This is based on the decisions of the independent referees appointed to decide questions under the Acts.
