§ LORD HENRY BRUCE (Wilts, Chippenham)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he can cause an inquiry to be made as to the truth of the alleged illegal transfer of over £2,000 from the Sick Benefit Fund to the Trade Fund of the Agricultural Labourers' Union?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
Perhaps the noble Lord will allow me to answer the Question. I understand that the Registrar of Friendly Societies 1798 has no official information as to the alleged transfer, and therefore that no question can arise of action on his part. The best course would be for any person who thinks himself aggrieved to lay a full statement of the matter before the Registrar.
