§ LORD R. CECIL (Marylebone, E.)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can state the grounds upon which the Government have been advised that the term borough in the Old-Age Pensions Act does not include a Metropolitan borough.
(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) The term "borough" is defined by the Interpretation Act, 1889, to mean a municipal borough; and a municipal; borough is defined as a borough that is subject to the Municipal Corporations Act, 1882, and therefore, does not include a Metropolitan borough.
