HC Deb 27 July 1965 vol 717 c59W
39. Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what percentage increases since 1961 have taken place in Civil Service salaries and Civil Service pensions, respectively.

Mr. MacDermot

The average pay of non-industrial civil servants increased by about 20 per cent. from 1960–61 to 1964–65. The level of new pensions increases automatically as average pay rises. The Pensions (Increase) Act 1962 provided increases ranging from 12 per cent. to 2 per cent. depending upon the date of retirement.
