HC Deb 28 January 1975 vol 885 c78W
34. Mr. Michael Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what negotiations she has in hand to extend reciprocal agreements with other countries in order that British pensioners resident overseas should receive increases in pensions equivalent to those which they would enjoy if still resident in the United Kingdom.

Mr. O'Malley

Discussions with Barbados and Guyana are expected to begin shortly.
