§ 90. Mr. Alan Howarth
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he now plans to allow retired members of the Overseas Civil Service to count war service towards their pension entitlement on the same terms as apply to retired members of the Home Civil Service; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
So far, we have not been able to accommodate this extra commitment; but we are keeping the matter under careful review.
