Friend the Joint Parliamentary Secretary informed the House during the debate on the Adjournment on 2nd June, the Commission have recently considered this matter afresh and have told me that, taking all the factors into account, they do not feel justified in improving the scheme of pension supplements which they introduced in March, 1953.
