§ Mr. Clinton Davis
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, what steps his Department is taking to deal with inadequate heating so far as retirement 154W pensioners in the inner London area are concerned in anticipation of the winter 1971–72.
§ Sir K. Joseph
All retirement pensioners, including those in the inner London area, will be helped by the substantial increases in pensions and other benefits which will take place in September. I also intend to remind local authorities and other local agencies of the importance of co-ordinated arrangements to deal with particular cases at risk because of poor heating.
