HC Deb 28 November 1951 vol 494 c1504
39. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what was the voting in the Nigerian Legislative Council on the Pensions Bill which provided for expatriation allowances to be included in the assessment of pensions; and, what approximately, was the extra cost of this.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The voting was 31 to eight in favour, with two abstentions. Expatriation pay has, in fact, been pensionable since the Harragin Report was adopted by resolution of the Legislative Council in December, 1946. No question of extra cost, therefore, arises.
