asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the further measures which are under consideration to assist retired members of the public services will also cover retired members of the Armed Forces.
§ 44. Sir J. Lucas
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will re-examine the position of retired officers of the Fighting Services with a view to pension increases when the proposed increases for retired public servants take place.
Sir I. Clark Hutchison
May I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply and ask him whether he can indicate when we may be likely to have a further statement on the proposed measures?
§ Sir J. Lucas
Will the Minister remember that the pre-1950 pensioners have, in the main, fought in both wars and are worthy of special consideration?
