§ 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.
