HC Deb 03 November 1948 vol 457 cc82-3W
72. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Colonial Governments have been approached by His Majesty's Government to consider revision of their pension schemes to conform with the increases granted under the Pensions (Increase) Act; and what answers have been received.

Mr. Creech Jones

All Colonial Governments were approached. On 5th March I placed in the Library a statement of the various pension increase schemes that Colonial Governments had adopted at that date and I am now placing in the Library a further statement showing the present position.
