§ Mr. Granville
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Colonial civil servants retiring on pension are to be allowed similar relief to that granted to home civil servants by the recent Amendment of the Pensions (Increase) Act.
Mr. Creech Jones
Most Colonial Governments award temporary increases on the basis prescribed in Section 1 of the Pensions (Increase) Act of 1944. I have drawn the attention of all Colonial Governments to the recent Amendments to the Act.
