HC Deb 08 April 1935 vol 300 cc789-90
29. Mr. K. LINDSAY

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give any information as to the number of trade unions with pension schemes for their members?


As far as can be ascertained from the latest returns furnished by registered trade unions, 106 of these unions are operating pension schemes for members. Comprehensive information is not available as regards unregistered unions, but it is understood that only a. small proportion of these unions have such schemes in operation.


In view of the many anomalies and difficulties in the way of obtaining information and also in view of the fact that there is going to be a lot more people of old age about during the next 30 years, will my right hon. Friend consider the views of employers and employés' organisations, as he is consulting them on the question of hours, on this question also?


I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind.
