Excerpt from Poor Law Aspects of National Health Insurance

In 1908, as an urgent measure of reform a non-contributory old-age pension act was passed, which, it is true, did away with much of the obvious poor law support in old age, but made untold additional paupers by granting as a right what had previously been accepted as a charity in the strict sense of the term. All fundamental principles of voluntary thrift and voluntary e?'ort were violated in the passing of that act, and no legislation is likely to prove more disastrous in its ultimate effects upon national life and character except the national health insurance act of 1911.
