HC Deb 07 December 1964 vol 703 c138W
72. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what would be the cost of bringing the retired pay and pensions of former naval, military and air personnel retired under earlier scales up to the scales applicable if their retirement were taking place now.

Mr. Mayhew

The cost for the Armed Forces in a full year would be about £25 million out of a total cost for all public service pensioners of over £100 million.
