HC Deb 02 March 1903 vol 118 c1215

[MR. JEFFREYS (Hampshire, N.) in the chair.]

On Clause 1:—

COLONEL BLUNDELL (Lancashire, Ince)

moved to extend the scope of the measure "to any pensioner in the Army and Navy."

THE CHAIRMAN ruled that the Amendment was outside the scope of the Bill. He had referred to the original Bill and found that it related only to friendly societies. The suggested Amendment would therefore be out of order.

Bill considered in Committee, and reported, without Amendment; read the third time, and passed.
