HC Deb 25 February 1926 vol 192 cc679-80
45. Mr. POTTS

asked the Prime Minister whether he will appoint a Select Committee of the House to investigate the general complaints throughout the country against the regulations of time limit and final awards, with a view to recommending adequate pensions and fixture of tenure to ex-service men and their dependants, whose health has been broken through or as a result of military or naval service on behalf of the country?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

No, Sir. The Government have fully considered the matter, and are satisfied, from all the information in their possession, that there are no grounds on which they would be justified in modifying their previous decision.


Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the action taken is harassing boards of guardians in all parts of the country, and, in addition, is starving war widows and their children?


This subject was very fully debated quite recently, when the House took the opposite view.
