HC Deb 21 July 1955 vol 544 c59W
25. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give an estimate of the number of persons receiving pensions from the Crown who are thereby disqualified under the present law for membership of the House of Commons; and of the approximate number under the House of Commons Disqualification Bill.

Major Lloyd-George

If the House of Commons Disqualification Bill were in force the number of persons who would be disqualified through receipt of pensions from the Crown would be about one hundred and sixty.
