HC Deb 10 March 1911 vol 22 c1828

Motion made and Question proposed, "That a Supplementary Sum, not exceeding £200,000, be granted to His Majesty, to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending: on the 31st day of March, 1911, for the payment of Old Age Pensions in the United Kingdom, and for certain Administrative Expenses in connection therewith."


I do not propose to discuss the question, but on Report I hope the responsible Minister will explain the extraordinary variation in these figures. They seem to show some slovenliness in preparation.
