77. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the cost of bringing the pensions of civil servants of the Crown retired under earlier scales up to the scales applicable if their retirement were taking place now.

Mr. MacDermot

About £25 million a year. The cost for the public services as a whole would be over £100 million a year.
