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

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

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. T. THOMSON:

39.

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.
