§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many United Kingdom citizens resident in Portugal are receiving pensions from the British Government.
§ Mr. Judd
Her Majesty's Consulate-General at Lisbon pays disability pensions to 22 United Kingdom citizens resident in Portugal for the Department of Health and Social Security, and three pensions for the Ministry of Overseas Development. Information is not readily available about pensions paid directly to United Kingdom residents in Portugal by other Departments. I shall endeavour to 39W obtain this and shall write to the hon. Member.
