§ Mr. Hale
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance the estimated administrative cost involved in the notification to a pensioner of an increase of one pension by one sum and the reduction of another pension received by the same pensioner of the same amount and the issue of two complete new pension books at the new rates and the withdrawal of the existing books.
§ Mr. Marples
The cost varies in individual cases. I cannot, therefore, put a figure upon it, but it is quite small.
