HC Deb 13 February 1978 vol 944 cc16-7W
Mr. Shepherd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Service what is the present purchasing power of the 25p per week supplement to the pension for those over 80 years of age compared to February 1974.

Mr. Orme

On the basis of the movement in the general index of retail prices between February 1974 and December 1977, the latest date for which a figure is available, the present equivalent of the 25p age addition in February 1974 is 13p.
