78. Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what is the value of the increased retirement pensions for single persons and married couples, respectively, compared with the value on the date when the increases were made.

The retirement pensions of 80s. for a single person and 130s. for a couple are now worth, respectively, 3s. 1d. and 5s. less than when they were introduced in March 1965.
