§ 46. Mr. McENTEE
(for Mr. WILMOT) asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take the necessary steps to obtain authority to make an extra payment to old age pensioners to mark Their Majesties' Jubilee?
§ Mr. COOPER
My right hon. Friend fears he cannot see his way to promote the legislation necessary to authorise such grants.
§ Mr. McENTEE
In view of the fact that the question asked for legislation and that the House would probably be unanimously in favour of it, will the hon. Gentleman consider introducing legislation?
