HC Deb 06 April 1965 vol 710 cc45-6W
48. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, other than through a Pensions Increase Act, any public money has been made avail- able to any pensioners drawing pensions from public sources for the purpose of raising those pensions to or above the general level; and whether he will put all pensioners on an equal footing.

Mr. Macdermot

A numbber of bodies wholly or largely financed by grants-in-aid, including the universities, increase pensions by analogy with the Pensions (Increase) Acts. Where necessary the provisions of the Acts are modified to provide comparable treatment.
