§ MR. MORLEY (for Mr. MONK)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the operation of "The Pensions Commutation Act, 1871," has been suspended by the Treasury so far as it relates to persons under sixty years of age, who have retired on superannuation or compensation allowance from Her Majesty's Customs, and who are still liable to be called upon to serve Her Majesty under the provisions of the Act of 22 Vic. c. 26?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
Sir, no such suspension has been made. At the same time, I must state that I object to commute a pension for any person if there is a definite prospect of his being employed in the public service.
