asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to continue after the end of 1945 the increased grant in retired pay and pensions for certain members of His Majesty's Forces who were granted some additional allowance to meet the increased cost of living, in view of the high cost of living to-day and the slender means of subsistence which many of them have at the present time.
