HC Deb 22 December 1919 vol 123 cc996-7
47. Mr. T. THOMSON

asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the great hardships at present borne by many old age pensioners owing to the high cost of living, the Government will authorise local pension committees to make increased grants at once pending the final decision of the Government on this matter?


I would refer the hon. Member to the Bill which passed through all its stages in this House on Friday last.
