§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if pensioners in workhouses, the cost of whose maintenance is deducted from pension, are debarred from the benefit of the Old-age Pensions Bill by Clause 3.
(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) The question is one of some difficulty; but, at at present advised, I am disposed to think that the Answer is in the affirmative.
