§ 55. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine
asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will take steps to ensure that Civil Service Departments give wide publicity to the fact that calculation of pension increases will be based on the original basic pension less the amount allocated yearly, and not on the original basic pension.
§ Mr. David Howell
Yes. Following the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1971 (now to be amended to provide for annual reviews), a reference will be made to this in the Allocation of Pension booklet issued to retiring civil servants.
