HC Deb 02 April 1971 vol 814 c457W
Mr. Kaufman

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the purchasing power of the retirement pension now, taking it as £6 for a single person, and £9.70 for a married couple, respectively, in November, 1969.

Mr. Dean

The question does not arise since the previous administration did not introduce such high pensions in November, 1969.
