§ 63. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he intends to introduce a Pensions (Increase) Bill to enable beneficiaries to share in the rising prosperity of the country.
§ Sir E. Boyle
The last Pensions (Increase) Act came into effect only 15 months ago. Under it public service pensions were increased, at the maximum by 12 per cent. My right hon. and learned Friend has no intention at present to introduce another such Bill.
