§ Mr. McKay
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance the approximate average addition to pensions received under the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1956, by the pensioners who come under the Third Schedule, paragraph 1 (c) exceeding £50 but not exceeding £100 and (d) exceeding £100 but not exceeding £130; and what is the average total pensions under the 1956 Act of these two categories now, showing the amounts for each separately.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I have been asked to reply. I regret that this information is not readily available, and could not be obtained without a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour, and without holding up the work of paying the increases due to pensioners under the Act.
