That this House expresses its grave concern at the inequality of treatment by Her Majesty's Government of British state pensioners living abroad; believes that the denial of pension increases to British subjects, who choose to retire to Canada, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa, is indefensible; and calls on the Government to end this discrimination without further delay.
