HC Deb 14 December 1965 vol 722 c228W
Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many British public service pensioners are now resident in Rhodesia; and what is the annual value of the pension paid to them.

Mr. Callaghan

There are about 600 pensioners of the U.K. public services, including an estimate for pensions for which local authorities are responsible; the total annual amount of the pensions is about £175,000. In addition, there are about 350 to 400 pensioners of Indian and other overseas services who receive between them about £150,000 a year either from U.K. funds or through the Crown Agents in London.
