HC Deb 09 October 1924 vol 177 c713

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the possibility of extending national responsibility for mental ex-service patients retrospectively, so as to cover the period from 1st October, 1922, to 31st March, 1924, during which national responsibility was disavowed?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. William Graham)

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for the Abertillery Division (Mr. G. Barker) on the 8th October.
