§ Mr. Hunter
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that it is almost three years since they were increased, if he will introduce legislation for increasing Civil Service pensions.
§ Mr. Harold Lever
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary gave to the hon. Member for St. Albans (Mr. Goodhew) on 21st November, when he drew attention to the Financial Secretary's speech on the Public Service and Armed Forces Commission Bill on 3rd February, and to the limited extent of the change in the cost of living since the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1965 came into operation on 1st January, 1966.—[Vol. 754, c. 1124–25.]
