HC Deb 30 June 1942 vol 381 c30
51. Mr. Leach

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will compile a list of social reform achievements in augurated since the beginning of the war, with the estimated cost in each case and inclusive of food subsidies, pay of Fighting Forces, dependants' allowances, supplementary and other pensions, wartime nurseries, etc.?

Sir K. Wood

I am considering whether a statement on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend would be useful and, if so, what its scope should be.

Mr. Leach

Would the right hon. Gentleman cast his modesty aside and make a proper statement on the achievements of the Government in this respect?

Sir K. Wood

As I have said, I will see what can be done.
