HC Deb 27 April 1914 vol 61 c1358W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) whether he will give the names of persons who have received political pensions of the first or second class under the Political Offices Pension Act, 1869, stating in each case the annual amount of each pension granted, the total amount received up to the present day by each pensioner, and the Prime Minister advising the pensions being granted; and (2) whether he will give the names of all persons who have received first or second class political pensions and have voluntarily given up such pensions during their lifetime?


The Return, House of Commons, 362 of 1904, will give my hon. Friend all the particulars for which he asks up to 31st March, 1904, except the name of the Prime Minister who advised the Grant. This information can, however, be readily ascertained from the dates. I shall be happy to grant a fresh Return in the same form, bringing the information down to 31st March, 1914, if my hon. Friend will move for it.
