I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for raising that issue. He will be aware that on page 43 of the document, we point out:

“With regard to UK state pensions paid to eligible UK state pension recipients living in Member States, in the event of leaving without a deal the UK has now committed to uprate state pensions paid in the EU for a further three years”— beyond the original guarantee— until the end of March 2023”.

We have a commitment, of course, to keep this policy under review.
