§ 58. Sir T. Beamish
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) who is undertaking the official review of public service and Armed Forces pensions to restore their full purchasing power; when their report will be made; and if it will be published;
(2) with which interested bodies official negotiations have been opened to see how the principle of parity can be applied to all public service and Armed Forces pensioners; how all such pensions can in future be linked to rising national prosperity as well as compensating for rising prices; and when a statement will be made.
§ Mr. MacDermot
In conducting the review, of which my hon. Friend told the House on 10th November, the Government will naturally consider any representations on behalf of public service pensioners. The House will be informed in due course of the Government's intentions.
