§ MR. WARNER (Stafford, Lichfield)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if the Government will take an early opportunity to consider the Report of the Committee on Old Age Pensions, and make a statement during this Session as to what steps they propose to take to introduce such a system?
§ The following Question was also on the Paper:—
§ MR. CHANNING
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he has considered the Report of the Committee on Old Age Pensions, and especially the statement in that Report that the Committee found themselves precluded by the terms of the reference from considering and reporting on several of the groups of schemes for providing old age pensions; and what course the Government propose to take in further dealing with this question?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
I really do not think I can add anything to the answer I gave in the House to a precisely similar question two days ago.
§ MR. WARNER
Is there any chance of the country having some idea of the Government proposals before next Session?
