57. Sir MONTAGUE BARLOW
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has had his attention directed to the Motion now on the Paper relating to War pensions and allowances, and the necessity of keeping them free from the influence of party organisations, standing in the name of the Member for Salford and other Members; whether he is aware that 269 Members of this House of all parties have given their names in support of this Motion; and whether, in view of the importance of the subject of the Motion and of the large number of Members who support it, the Government can give an early day after the Recess for its discussion?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
It is evident that there is a very general desire for the discussion of this subject, and I hope to be able to provide an opportunity for it after the Recess.
