Mr. Marks

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will, in view of inflation, increase the pensions of ex-Servicemen awarded pensions for long service, before 31st March, 1972.

Mr. Kirk:

Armed Forces pensions awarded before 1st April, 1972, will be reviewed in July at the same time as all public service pensions are reviewed. Any increase will be paid to qualified pensioners from 1st December next.
