asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many, and which, Colonial Governments have now brought pension increases for retired colonial civil servants into line with the increases recently granted to similar civil servants in Britain.

Up to the present, the Governments of Aden, the Gambia, Gibraltar, Sierra Leone, and North Borneo have brought their pension increase schemes into line with the amendments made recently to Section I of the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1944. I expect to receive within the next month or two particulars of the action proposed by other Colonial Governments.
