§ MR. CURRAN (Durham, Jarrow)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether a pension officer in connection with the Old-Age Pensions Act is to be appointed for the borough of Croydon; and, if so, whether, in view of the present state of unemployment, he will give instructions that the person to be appointed must not be anyone who has retired from a position in respect of which he is receiving a pension.
(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) No superannuated officer has been, or will be, appointed as a pension officer.
