Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants. – in the House of Commons on 9th October 1924.
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that there has been no meeting of the Central Advisory Committee for over 12 months; and what steps he proposes to take to call this Committee together at an early date?
Yes, Sir. In the reorganisation of Advisory Councils, which I have succeeded in carrying through, one of my objects has been to secure a more effective representation of local opinion on the Central Advisory Committee, which in my judgment was formerly somewhat deficient in this respect. It will, I hope, now be possible to have a meeting of the re-constituted Advisory Committee at an early date.
