9781331545415: Old Age Pensions: Their Actual Working and Ascertained Results in the United Kingdom (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Old Age Pensions: Their Actual Working and Ascertained Results in the United Kingdom

The key to this book is contained in one sentence in the first paragraph, "a practical and human account of the actual working and ascertained results of the Act." It is not a legal treatise, though it is written by a lawyer. It is not an administrative account, though it is written by an administrator. It is simply "practical and human." This is what was wanted for this great and beneficent measure.

The Old Age Pension scheme is not perfect, of course, and the author of this book points out its chief demerits. It sins in one or two matters of principle according to my judgment. But it has escaped a great danger, the danger advocated by Mr. Chaplin's Committee of associating old age pensions with the poor law. That would have been a crime.

The administrative machinery is on an entirely new principle. The grant of old age pensions is a national service, but it was obviously impossible to administer it from a central department of the State.
