of the effectiveness of the Liberal social welfare reforms
The overall judgement of most historians was that the pensions were helpful. However they believed that it was not an overall solution to old age poverty. One aspect of the law that was welcomed by the elderly which remained unchallenged was that the pension was paid as a right and available to all who worked. The Liberals may not have solved all problems of elderly poverty but had brought an important and lasting principle.
In the poorer areas of big cities like Glasgow and Manchester life expectancy was 45 and pensions only became available at 70 so it did not solve poverty as many did not live long enough to collect their pension. The dreaded workhouses were still an option for many who struggled to survive. Therefore, Many argue it would have been more effective to focus on healthcare so people would live long enough to collect the pension.
The pensions act was helpful and important because it meant that the principle of helping those after work with some form of income was established.
However, Rowntree argued that again the amount given was not enough and 7s was the minimum amount a person could live off. Therefore, poverty in the elderly was not dealt with directly and the issue of not having enough to survive when you stopped working continued.
Although the reforms for the young did help the problem of poverty in children to a certain extent questions remain about the effectiveness to eradicate it. The reforms were more of a stepping stone and in order to deal with the problem of child poverty more focus was needed on families as a whole to avoid falling deeper into poverty. The reforms though effective later, were initially seen as inconsistent and at the decision of local authorities. Therefore, in comparison with elderly which was made compulsory across the whole of Britain help for the young in poverty took longer to establish a clear improvement in children's lives.
