§ Mr. ROWNTREE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, in view of the finding of the Working Classes Cost of Living Committee that there has been, since July, 1914, an increase in the cost of living of nearly 80 per cent., whether he will consider the immediate necessity of raising the scale of old age pensions by a corresponding percentage?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I am unable to add any thing to the previous replies given by myself and by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on this subject.
