Mr Douglas Pielou: I should, first of all, like to congratulate and thank the Minister for the concession that he has given in connection with this Clause. I am one on those who believe that we have to study economy more to-day than ever, but I object to practising economy at the expense of the ex-service men's pensions or those of widows and dependants of those who laid down their lives. I would far sooner...

Orders of the Day — Contributory Pensions Bill.: Clause 24. — (Provision against double pensions.) (14 Jul 1925)

Mr Douglas Pielou: Trade was good, industry was moving, and yet between 1919 and 1922 the scheme has so little succeeded that the whole system has to be revised.
