HC Deb 27 April 1915 vol 71 c595W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has received a resolution from the Merthyr Tydvil County Borough Trades Council urging him, in view of the abnormal increase in the prices of food and necessaries of life, to increase the 5s. per week paid to old age pensioners; and whether he can say what decision he has come to on the matter?


I have been unable to trace the letter containing the resolution referred to. As regards the latter part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for the Attercliffe Division on the 20th instant.
