§ 38. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what reply he gave to the deputation from the 818 British Legion and other organisations when they asked for a basic pension of 90s. per week.
§ The Minister of Pensions and National Insurance (Mr. John Boyd-Carpenter)
I undertook to consider the deputation's views as regards both the basic rate of war pension and certain other matters in consultation with my colleagues.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
As the hon. Gentleman knows perfectly well, when responsible and important bodies raise matters of major policy a certain amount of time is always taken for consideration.
