HC Deb 17 March 1959 vol 602 c16W
64. Mr. Moyle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the decline in the value of money as a result of inflation, and the recent rise in rents, if he will now take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to increase the pensions of retired public servants.

Mr. Simon

The Index of Retail Prices for February again stands at 110. This is only 1 point above the monthly average for 1958. Such stability helps retired public servants, in common with all who live on small fixed incomes.
