HC Deb 22 July 1919 vol 118 c1162W

asked the Prime Minister whether any communication was made to Sir Charles Stewart, K.B.E., the late Public Trustee, before it was announced that he had been granted a Civil List pension of £200; whether any application for a pension had been made by Sir Charles Stewart or by anyone on his be-half; and whether there is any precedent for granting Civil List pensions without any application having been made for the same?


No application came from the gentleman referred to himself, but strong recommendations on his behalf were made to the First Lord of the Treasury.
