HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 cc1070-1W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether it will be possible in the regrouping of pensions areas, and with the proper view of economy, to consider the difficulty and inconvenience of plac- ing Shaw, Royton, and Compton under the Oldham area; and if he will form these districts into a group by themselves, more convenient in respect of geographical position and thus more accessible for pensioners themselves?


The combined population of the districts mentioned does not justify the formation of a separate Committee. My right hon. Friend considers that no difficulty or inconvenience should arise through these districts being included in the Oldham area.
