HC Deb 28 November 1951 vol 494 c1510
62. Mr. Michael Foot

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will give an estimate of how much public expenditure would be involved if all naval pensioners were to receive an increase in their pensions equivalent to those recently awarded to men who left the Service after 1st September, 1950; and what action he is proposing to assist those naval pensioners who did not receive the recent increase.
