HC Deb 18 February 1988 vol 127 c688W
Q50. Mr. Harry Ewing

To ask the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on the under-calculation made in the cost of living increase due to be paid in 1987 to retired public sector pensioners; and how it is proposed to refund to such pensioners the shortfall in their pensions.

The Prime Minister

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Paymaster General to my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon, South (Sir W. Clark) on 18 December 1987, at columns 845–46. Details of the arrangements for making payments to charities are still being worked out and will be announced soon.
