§ MR. FRANCIS STEVENSON (Suffolk, Eye)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the measure relating to Friendly Societies, mentioned in the Queen's Speech, will relate solely to societies and companies to which Section 30 of "The Friendly Societies Act, 1875," is applicable?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
The Bill relating to Friendly Societies has only recently been drafted, and it is impossible for me to give any pledge as to what form it may take before it is introduced. It will follow generally the line of the Report of the Committee of last year.
