HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc36-7
60. Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Prime Minister if he will take into consideration an increase in the sum set aside for civil list pensions so as to permit an increase of the individual amounts granted to deserving men and women?


The total amount of new pensions which may be granted in any year is limited by the statutory provisions of the Civil List Act. In present circumstances I cannot contemplate the introduction of amending legislation.
