§ Dr. King
Will the Chancellor of the Exchequer remember that these are small groups of people who cannot affect General Election results, and that these are people who for five years have been suffering a steady diminution in their standard of living? Has not the time now come for a further Pensions (Increase) Act?
§ Mr. Butler
We have already had one Pensions (Increase) Act. I read the report of the speech of the hon. Member in the debate on the Address, and I agree with him that this is a very serious problem. That is why I gave the answer that the matter is being kept under review.
