HC Deb 08 May 1924 vol 173 cc623-4
48. Lieut.-Colonel POWNALL

asked the Prime Minister when it is proposed to introduce the Pre-War Pensioners Bill?


I regret that it will not be possible to take the Financial Resolution required for this Bill next week; but it will, I hope, be possible to do so in the week following.

Lieut.-Colonel POWNALL

Will the right hon. Gentleman consider making the provisions of this Bill retrospective in view of the very considerable delay which has already taken place?


That is rather a big point, but it will be considered.
