§ The following Question stood upon the Order Paper
§ 35. Mr. LEWIS
To ask the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance, if he is aware that the 100 per cent. war disability pension of 40s., in 1938. would require, today, a figure in excess of 103s. to restore the same purchasing value at present-day prices; and what steps he proposes to take to improve the present pension rates.
§ Sir I. Fraser
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You will remember, as I do, that for twenty years or more it was possible for a Member to ask a Question on behalf of his hon. Friend. Is that still allowed?
§ Mr. Speaker
No. That was only allowed, as I remember it, when there was a second round of Questions. The second round of Questions has gone long ago.
