§ MR. R. HARCOURT (Montrose Burghs)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he will issue some memorandum or return summarising the various decisions given in 1840 doubtful cases under the Old-Age Pensions Act which at present are only available in Departmental letters, Answers to Questions in Parliament, and the like.
(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) I issued a circular on the 11th instant to local pension committees and sub committees informing them of the decisions arrived at upon some of the more prominent questions raised by the appeals made to the Local Government Board under the Act. The circular has been laid upon the Table, and will be in the hands of Members immediately.
