HC Deb 14 March 1938 vol 333 c31
62. Mr. Leach

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now in a position to say what is to be the composition of the committee to be set up to consider the question of spinsters' pensions and when it is to be appointed?

Lieut.-Colonel Colville

My right hon. Friend is not yet in a position to make any announcement on this subject.

Mr. Leach

If I put down a question a week hence, will it be possible to get an answer?

Lieut.-Colonel Colville

I could not be certain. The work is proceeding, but if the hon. Member desires I can let him know when he might put down a further question.
