HC Deb 08 March 1966 vol 725 cc455-6W
42. Mr. John Hall

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what representations have been made to him by the Overseas Service Pensioners' Association against the imposition by the Ghana Government of an additional tax on pensions of retired civil servants, such deduction having been made without any previous warning or fresh assessment; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Oram

I discussed this matter with members of the Association on 18th February, and I told them that the Ministry was doing all that it could to assist pensioners to obtain satisfaction. I understand that tax assessments have now been sent to pensioners by the Ghana authorities.
