HC Deb 14 March 1939 vol 345 c234W
Sir J. Leech

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to receive the report of the Committee on Spinsters' Pensions; and whether he will, when received, make an announcement to the House?

Sir J. Simon

I hope to receive the report before the end of this month, and it will be published in due course. I cannot, however, promise to make an announcement until I have received the report and had time to consider its terms.
