asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to whom, and to what amounts, hereditary pensions are now being paid; and the total amount so paid up to 31st December, 1923?


My hon. Friend will find particulars of the persons to whom the remaining perpetual pensions are payable, their amounts respectively and the duration of the grant in each case on page 44 of the Finance Accounts for 1922–1923 (House of Commons Paper 89). With regard to the last part of the question, the mere addition of sums paid over a long series of years, including commutation payments, would not give a correct impression of the value of the payments in respect of these pensions.

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us whether the questioner has any family interest in this question?
