asked the Chancellor if he can now make any further statement concerning the relief of many of the old age pensioners from the burdens which even under the recent Budget will still be borne by them.


asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the cost of extending the suggested 4s. old age pension increase so as to apply to men over 65 and women over 60 years of age.

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my right hon. Friend the Minister of National Insurance gave to the hon. Member for Cardiff, North (Mr. Llewellyn) on 19th April.

Does not my right hon. Friend agree that the man between 65 and 70 who is unable to work is having a very rough time indeed today? Will he not consider whether something should be done for these people?

Perhaps my hon. Friend would agree that these matters can be more appropriately discussed in Thursday's debate.
