HC Deb 14 May 1925 vol 183 cc1996-7
10. Mr. HAYES

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will give instructions that in the preparation of the agenda for the meetings of the Central Advisory Committee or Area War Pensions Committees any matters submitted by Committee members shall be included?


In the case of War Pensions Committees the matters to be discussed at their meetings are within the discretion of the Committee under their rules of procedure, and no instructions are, in my judgment, required. It is the function of the Central Advisory Committee, under the terms of Section 3 of the War Pensions Act, 1921, to consider such matters as may be put before them by the Minister for their advice
