§ Sir I. Fraser
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations when the increases in pensions for a limited number of ex-officers, which the Government has approved, will be paid; and from what date arrears will be paid.
§ Mr. J. Foster
Payment of the increases due up to 15th June, 1954, has already been made in some cases, and it is hoped that in most of the remaining cases payment will be made within the next fortnight or so. Arrears have been calculated from 1st April. 1954.
