asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) whether the review of Service and Civil Service pensions, which he undertook to make on 4th May, 1955, has been completed; and if he will make a statement;
(2) whether he is now able to give an undertaking that within the present Session he will introduce a Pensions (Increase) Bill, which will deal with the claims of retired officers of Her Majesty's Forces.
§ The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Mr. Harold Macmillan)
I shall be making a statement shortly.
