§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she will endeavour to obtain reciprocal agreements with South Africa which would ensure that Britons drawing the national insurance retirement pension in that country receive the benefit of any increase in that pension made after they left Great Britain.
§ Mr. O'Malley
No negotiations are planned at present.
South Africa has a State pensions scheme of a type which does not lend itself to reciprocity with the United Kingdom.
