§ Mr. David Clark
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what arrangements he has made in respect of payment of the £10 bonus to holders of State retirement pensions who intend to be abroad for four months as from mid-November and who have made arrangements to draw their retirement pension overseas.
§ Mr. Dean
A pensioner entitled to the lump sum payment who is abroad in the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Gibraltar, or a member country of the EEC, and who has notified his absence abroad, will be paid by early December without application. If he is abroad in any other country he will be paid when he notifies his return.
