§ 48. Dr. WATTS
asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been drawn to the grievances of pre-War pensioners; and if he will introduce legislation to amend the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1920, with a view to their removal?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
I have been asked to reply, and would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on the 25th October, 1926, to the hon. Member for Devonport.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
May I ask whether it is not the fact that a majority of the supporters of the Government are pledged to introduce legislation on this subject, and does the hon. Gentleman not think that the Government should honour this pledge?
