§ MR. JOSEPH HOWARD (Middlesex, Tottenham)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the scheme of old age pensions submitted to the Government in 1895 by the originator, Mr. W. S. Cottew, involving no expense to the country, has been brought to his notice; and whether he can now take it into consideration.
(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) I have had the scheme referred to by my hon. friend under my notice, but I am not impressed by its feasibility.
