HC Deb 13 March 1962 vol 655 c1101
18. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many ex-members of the Colonial Service or Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service are receiving pensions from the Government of Kenya; and how many of these are receiving increases less than those received under the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1959, of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Maudling

I have asked the Acting Governor for further information and will write to my hon. Friend as soon as I have it.

Mr. Tilney

Is it not surprising that the figures have been supplied to me from the Crown Agent and that my right hon. Friend does not know?

Mr. Maudling

I am not sure that I have been completely caught out this time. I hope to prove that I have not been.

Dame Irene Ward

Does this pleasant rather late co-operation betoken a change of heart after Lord Boyd's speech in another place?

Mr. Maudling

I do not quite follow the drift of my hon. Friend's question, but if there is ever a change of heart I am sure that it is for the better. I am not quite sure what she is referring to.
