HC Deb 16 November 1966 vol 736 c432
54. Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on the review of the regulations for commuting Service pensions which was begun two years ago.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

I regret that this review, to which I attach special importance, should be taking so long. But the subject is complex. I shall make a statement at the earliest possible moment.

Mr. Longden

I am grateful for that Answer. It has taken an unconscionable time. Is the working party really working, or is it a party?

Mr. Mallalieu

It is working very hard.
