asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is yet in a position to state what adjustments to long-service naval pensions are contemplated by reason of the retiral pensions benefits proposed under the National Insurance Act, 1946.

No, Sir. I regret I am not yet in a position to add to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend on 25th November last.

Can the Financial Secretary give any indication when he will be able to make a statement on this, in view of its importance?

I fully realise its importance, but it concerns a number of other Departments besides the Admiralty. I cannot yet give any firm date.
