HC Deb 18 June 1997 vol 296 c215W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if she will review the link between the basic pension and prices. [3275]

Mr. Denham

We will shortly be announcing details of a review of the central areas of insecurity for elderly people. We are committed to the Basic State Pension and will retain it as the foundation of pension provision. It will be increased at least in line with prices. All aspects of the basic pension will be included in our review.
