HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c229W
Mr. Dean

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what would be the annual cost of raising the weekly net amount which a retirement pensioner can earn without having any reduction in the pension from £5 to £6.

Mr. Pentland

If one could assume that the change would not increase the number of retirements the annual cost would be of the order of £350,000.
