HC Deb 28 July 1937 vol 326 cc3105-6W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will appoint a Departmental Committee to examine the anomalies that exist in the Widows' and Old Age Pensions Acts and to report on the demand for an increase in the old age and widows' pensions?

Lieut.-Colonel Colville

I do not think that a committee such as the hon. Member suggests would serve any useful purpose.
