HC Deb 04 November 1918 vol 110 c1802W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that 302 Members of Parliament of all parties have signified in writing their approval of the proposal that a Select Committee of the House of Commons should be constituted of all parties to deal with pensions; and whether he can take steps to see that such a Select Committee of this House be forthwith constituted to deal with pensions and allowances and similar matters, or to grant a day for the discussion of the proposal?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and as this indicates a widespread desire for such a discussion, if my hon. Friend will put the question again at the beginning of next week, I shall be able to say definitely whether it is possible to arrange it.
