asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many ex-members of the Colonial Service or Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service are receiving pensions from the Government of Gambia; and how many of these are receiving increases less than those received under the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1959, of the United Kingdom.

Although information about the number of such pensioners paid in the United Kingdom is readily available, a number are paid elsewhere. I am therefore consulting the Acting Governor and I will write to the hon. Member as soon as I have the complete figures.
