Pensions Increase Bill. (25 Jun 1924)

Mr John Davidson: I fully realise that it is impossible to get by amendment anything more out of this Bill than the Bill actually gives, because it is governed by the Money Resolution, and I merely rise to make this statement to let the Chancellor of the Exchequer know, and, indeed, any future Chancellor of the Exchequer, to whatever party he may belong, that I and my hon. Friends who think with me in this...

Orders of the Day — Pensions Increase [Money]. (5 Jun 1924)

Mr John Davidson: I wish the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to know that I and those who are working with me do not intend to oppose the Resolution.

Pensions Increase [Money]. (19 May 1924)

Mr John Davidson: I rise to endorse what has been said by every Member who has spoken so far and to request the Government to withdraw this Resolution.

Pensions Increase [Money]. (19 May 1924)

Mr John Davidson: I misunderstood. I gather this increase is to cost £300,000 a year. I think that will cease to be a cost to the. Exchequer in five years' time.'

They are coming on to the Old Age Pension and with the means limit there will be money saved, and this is a diminishing cost which will disappear practically in five...
