asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many (a) male and (b) female retirement pensioners have been sent new or amended income tax PAYE codes due to the uprating of social security benefits on 23 November.

[pursuant to his reply, 25 November 1981, c. 375]: The number of retirement pensioners who have been sent new or amended PAYE codes because of this year's uprating of Social Security benefits is not yet available, but the equivalent figure for last year was just over 2,200,000. The Inland Revenue's records of these figures do not differentiate between male and female pensioners.
