HC Deb 02 August 1939 vol 350 c2372
50. Mr. Cartland

asked the Prime Minister whether, when considering the question of old age pensions, the Government will review the position of annuity and retirement schemes in operation in various firms, trades unions, co-operative societies, etc., with a view to bringing them with the State contributory scheme into one uniform national scheme?

The Prime Minister

Mr. Rhys Davies
