§ 30. Mr. Dempsey
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to increase the additional age allowance, fixed at 25p in 1970, to a more realistic amount for 80-year-old and over retirement pensioners; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Prentice
My right hon. Friend has no plans to increase the age addition to retirement pensions, which was first introduced in September 1971.
