§ Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
asked the Minister of Health whether it is his intention to introduce legislation to give effect to the recommendations of the departmental committee on the superannuation of persons employed by local authorities in England and Wales?
§ Mr. CHARLES EDWARDS
asked the Minister of Health whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill making provision for superannuation for all local government officers, as promised in 1920; and, if so, when such Bill is to be introduced?
§ Dr. ADDISON
In view of the heavy charges which such a measure would impose upon the rates, the Government regret that they cannot proceed with the matter at the present time.
