Oral Answers to Questions — Friendly Societies' Returns (Fees).

– in the House of Commons on 30th March 1922.

Alert me about debates like this



asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that friendly societies generally view with considerable alarm the proposal of the National Economy Committee that a charge should be imposed upon them for complying with their legal obligations in the matter of making returns; and is he willing to receive a deputation representative of the societies affected before the Government comes to any decision on this matter?

I have received representations on the lines indicated in the first part of the question, and hope to be able to receive a deputation representing the societies affected.
