§ 37. Mr. Neave
asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he will make a statement on the position of widows of post-retirement marriages in the public service.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker:
The reviews of the public service pension schemes have not so far led to any recommendation for covering the widows of post-retirement marriages, but a final decision must await the proposed legislation of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services.
