HC Deb 05 March 1918 vol 103 cc1833-4
58. Mr. BYRNE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the number of lower-grade Civil servants in receipt of pensions of less than £100 per annum who through age, infirmity, or other valid reasons are unable to supplement their at present admittedly inadequate allowance; and whether, with a view of granting them a temporary addition during the period of the War, he will introduce some feasible scheme?

Mr. JAMES HOPE (Lord of the Treasury)

My hon. Friend (Mr. Stanley Baldwin) has been called away, and he asks me to say that he has nothing to add to his previous answers on this subject
