§ 59. Mr. STEPHEN WALSH
asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the desirability of legislation at an early date for the purpose of amending the Old Age Pensions Acts, 1908 to 1911, so as to raise the yearly means of applicants from £21, the limit above which the full pension is not payable, to £42, and £31 10s., the limit beyond which no pension is payable, to £52?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
These will be matters for the consideration of the Committee which I propose to appoint, as I stated on the 17th instant.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the hon. Gentleman prepared to say if that Committee will be a Select Committee of the House of Commons?
An HON. MEMBER
Is it fair that the ownership of cottages should be used against people applying for old age pensions?
