Written Answers. - Payment of Pension.

254.

asked the Minister for Social Welfare the reason for the delay in the payment of an old age pension at the full rate to a person (details supplied) in County Cork; and whether arrangements are now being made for payment.

Pension at the maximum rate is not appropriate in this case. The pensioner's means, consisting of capital, do not entitle her to a higher rate of pension than that at present in payment to her.
