HC Deb 13 March 1984 vol 56 cc116-7W
Ms Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what would be the value of the retirement pension if it had been uprated in 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982 and 1983 in line with the increase in prices or average earnings to November each year, whichever was the higher on the assumption that each year's forecast precisely matched the outturn.

Dr. Boyson

I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Pontypridd (Mr. John) on 7 February 1984, at columns585–86.
