HC Deb 22 June 1943 vol 390 c1009
61. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many retired civil servants are affected in a similar manner to retired officers of the Armed Forces by the Order of 1934 stabilising pensions at 9– per cent. below the basic rates; and what would be the cost of restoring to them the original basic rates of 1919?

Sir K. Wood

Civil Service pensions are not calculated in the same way as the retired pay of officers of the Armed Forces, and there are no basic rates of 1919 to which they could be restored.
