HC Deb 17 July 1995 vol 263 c998W
21. Mr. Roy Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what recent consideration he has given to the method of assessment of the state pension. [32785]

Mr. Heald

The state pension is uprated each year in line with prices, this reflects the commitment to increase all major benefits in line with inflation and is fully in line with the Government's commitment to help those in greatest need.
