HC Deb 10 December 1919 vol 122 c1312
54. Colonel GRETTON

asked the Prime Minister if the Government proposes to carry out any of the recommendations of the Select Committee on Old Age Pensions before the end of this Session?

56. Captain BOWYER

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the Government has determined to introduce legislation to amend the scheme of old age pensions; whether this scheme will be on the lines recommended in the Majority Report recently submitted to the House; and, in view of the inadequacy of the present old age pension, will he introduce this legislation at as early a date as possible?


I can add nothing to what I said in reply to questions on this subject on Monday last.


Are we to understand that the Government do not propose to do anything this Session?


No; the answer I gave was that we hoped to be able to announce our proposals before the Recess.
