HC Deb 28 July 1958 vol 592 c78W
40. Mr. N. Pannell

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance the estimated cost of raising the pensions of widows receiving only 10s. a week under insurance Acts prior to 1948 to an amount sufficient to restore its purchasing power to that of 10s. in 1939.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Rather more than £6 million a year.
