I do not think that any details are required at this stage. The object of the Bill is to redress certain anomalies in the payment of pensions to governors. The question has been gone into very carefully by a Committee under the chairmanship of Lord Buxton, and on that Committee there served the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Sir R. Hamilton), the hon. Member for East Woolwich (Mr. Snell) and my right hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State. The actual charges involved are set forth in the White Paper which was before the House when the Financial Resolution was introduced.
