HC Deb 03 April 1952 vol 498 c153W
104. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will consult with the Government of Ceylon, which to meet the increased cost of living since the end of the war, has granted increases of pensions to all grades of Ceylonese pensioners, while refusing similar increases to pensioners resident in Britain, with a view to removing this discrimination.

Mr. J. Foster

I recently received a deputation from the Ceylon Pensioners' Association on this matter. The Association made certain representations which it is proposed to discuss with the Ceylon Government.
