HC Deb 15 August 1887 vol 319 c491
MR. GODSON (Kidderminster)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether Her Majesty's Government intend to deal any further with the many difficulties arising from the present defects in the working of the Friendly Societies Acts than they are about to do in "The Friendly Societies Act (1875) Amendment (No. 3) Bill?"


Yes, Sir; it is the intention of the Government to deal further with the difficulties arising from defects in the laws relating to Friendly Societies. The Government propose to make an exhaustive inquiry into the whole question, the Bill at present before the House dealing only with, some minor points on which all are agreed.
