HC Deb 22 July 1927 vol 209 cc719-20W

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that there has been no comprehensive inquiry into the problem of public assistance since the introduction of old age pensions, national health insurance, unemployment insurance, and widows' and orphans' and old age contributory pensions, and in view of the rapid increase of the cost of social services, he will advise the appointment of a Royal Commission to consider and report on the administration of the social services and on the possibility of better co-ordination between them?


I do not think that I can usefully add anything to the reply which I gave to a similar question by my hon. Friend on the 10th February, 1926.
