HC Deb 12 May 1925 vol 183 c1687W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that the Bolton and Leigh and District War Pensions Committee has passed a resolution to the effect that it is of opinion that a Select Committee, which should not be Departmental, should be appointed to make full inquiry into pensions regulations, particularly as regards final awards, treatment and treatment allowances, seven years' limit, pensions appeals tribunals, epileptic and chronic neurasthenics, education and care of motherless children, and the special treatment of pensioners otherwise than through the statutory channel of the war pensions committee; if so, whether he has considered the contents of the resolution; and whether he has arrived at a decision thereon?


I have not received the resolution referred to, but in regard to the substance of the suggestion, perhaps I may refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the Prime Minister in the House on the 26th March last, of which I am sending him a copy.
