§ 58. Mr. CLOUGH
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the strength of local feeling on the inadequacy of the old age pension and the need for greatly increasing the statutory scale of yearly means on which the several rates of pension are based, he anticipates being able this Session to give effect to legislation in this direction?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
As my hon. Friend is no doubt aware, these questions are at 1412 present under consideration by Committee, and I am not at present able to say whether its Report will be received in time to enable it to be dealt with this Session.
