To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether the Government has made an assessment of the change in the relative value of overseas UK pensioners' state pensions for each percentage fall in the value of the pound.

No such assessment has been made. The exchange rate is subject to fluctuation. As a result state pension payments will change depending on the rate for foreign currency.
