§ Mr. Fairhurst
asked the Minister of National Insurance if he has considered the position of aged persons who have worked throughout their lives in this country and been the parents of children who have served in the Armed Forces of this country, but being themselves the illegitimate children born abroad of a British father and a foreign mother are not eligible for British pension; and if he will introduce legislation to deal with this type of hardship.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
The nationality test to which my hon. Friend refers applies only to non-contributory pensions. The question whether or not it should be modified will be considered in connection with the legislation shortly to be introduced.
