47. Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps the 1096 Government propose to take in order to give practical effect to the large consensus of opinion in the House of Commons in favour of widows' pensions?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)
I have at present nothing to add to the reply given by the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for the Western Isles on the 16th March.
Will the Government be in a position on the Motion to-morrow night to make a statement?
§ Major HORE-BELISHA
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in a publication called "Looking Ahead" a very particular statement was made?
§ Captain GARRO-JONES
Is there any subject before the House on which the right hon. Gentleman or the Prime Minister can give us a specific statement?
