HC Deb 08 July 1890 vol 346 cc1103-4
MR. RANKIN (Herefordshire, Leominster)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will take into his consideration the propriety of allocating the amount which had been set apart for the extinction of licences to County Councils, for the purpose of creating and assisting a County Pension Fund for old age, established either as a separate County Fund, or carried on by the agency of Friendly Societies?


I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he has considered, and, if not, will consider, the advisability of utilising the £350,000, which was to have been devoted by the County Councils to the extinction of public house licences, for the purpose of making provision for the superannuation of the teachers in all elementary schools, whether Board or Voluntary schools?

*THE FIRST LOED OF THE TREASUBY (Mr. W. H. SMITH,) Strand, Westminster

In answer to the questions of the hon. Members for Leominster and North Camberwell, I can only repeat that the Government will carefully consider all proposals relative to the disposition of the Fund intended for the extinction of licences.


Can the right hon. Gentleman give an intimation as to how soon the Amendments are likely to be put down?


I am not able to give any indication at present.
