§ 36. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether men between forty-one and fifty-one are to be denied the rights hitherto accorded to men below forty-one when appearing before a tribunal of having, if they so desire, legal assistance; and, if so, why are they thus penalised?
The point raised by my hon. Friend will doubtless be discussed in the course of this afternoon's Debate. It will be remembered that my right hon. Friend the President of the Local Government Board stated that he was very desirous of ascertaining the opinion of the House, and I think it will be best not to anticipate that discussion.
