§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what would be the cost of giving price protection to the pensions of people contracted out of the present graduated pensions scheme equivalent to that given to people contracted in by the proposals set out in the White Paper "Better Pensions" (Command Paper No. 5713).
§ Mr. O'Malley
It is not possible to make an estimate in the time available but I shall write to the hon. Member when the calculations have been made.
