HC Deb 29 March 1965 vol 709 c171W
Sir J. Eden

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the number of former regular officers and men of the Polish armed forces now retired and permanently resident in Great Britain; and what would be the cost of paying them a pension similar to that paid to their British opposite numbers who retired on the 1956 code.

Mr. Mayhew

Precise numbers are not known but are thought to be between 3,000 and 4,000. The cost of paying pensions on the basis suggested would, it is estimated, amount to about £2 million a year.
