Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Amending Pension Act.

asked the Minister for Local Government and Public Health whether it is proposed to introduce at an early date proposal for legislation to amend the Widows' and Orphans' Pensions Act and, if so, when these proposals will be available.

Consideration of proposals for the amendment of the Widows' and Orphans' Pensions Act is well advanced and a Bill will be introduced as early as possible, but I cannot yet give a definite date.
