HC Deb 22 May 1924 vol 173 cc2422-3W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Minister of Pensions if he can make any statement as to his intentions on the subject of the appointment of advisory councils, regional or centralised?


As I informed the hon. Member for Rugby on the 8th May, I am making arrangements for bringing War Pensions Committees into closer relationship with the Ministry by providing for an improved system of representation for Committees on Advisory Councils and of representation, in turn, of Advisory Councils on the Central Advisory Committee. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of that reply together with a copy of the circular therein mentioned. The constitution and membership of the Central Advisory Committee, on which I propose to include a representative from each Advisory Council, will be considered further after the latter bodies have been set up.
