HC Deb 08 June 1964 vol 696 c14W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he has yet decided to make further provision by way of increased pensions or otherwise for limbless ex-service men in order to make their pensions more commensurate with the increased cost of living.

Mr. Wood

The Government have made a number of increases in the basic rates of war disablement pension which have more than compensated for the rise in the cost of living. Limbless pensioners, like war pensioners generally, have benefited from these increases.
