§ Mr. Gwilym Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will ensure that the linking of pensions continues to be related to the retail price index and not to any additional taxless or wage cost of living index.
§ Mr. Prentice
My right hon. Friend is required to review pensions and other benefits each year to determine whether they have retained their value. Any up-rating proposals that he puts forward will fully discharge his statutory obligation.
