asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the representations of the British Order of Ancient Free Gardeners, Kirkcaldy district, protesting against the application of the means test to old age pen- sions; and whether he is prepared to consider sympathetically the appeal to apply a flat rate of pension to all qualified persons?

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered a resolution from the Kirkcaldy district of the British Order of Ancient Free Gardeners, protesting against the application of the means test to old age pensioners, and particularly as it affects the most prominent of their members; and will he consider their appeal to introduce a flat rate applicable to all who are duly qualified?

I am not aware of the representations to which my hon. Friends refer, but if they will let me have particulars, I will consider them.
