§ Sir Peter Hordern
sked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has received the report from the steering group of friendly societies: and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ian Stewart
[pursuant to his reply, 8 December 1986]: A copy of the Report entitled "The Friendly Societies in the Welfare State", prepared by Professor E. V. Morgan for the Steering Committee of the National Conference of Friendly Societies was received on 27 November. Professor Morgan's report makes a number of recommendations for change which will be considered carefully.
