§ SIR RICHARD TEMPLE (Worcester, Evesham)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether Mr. C. J. Cox, Principal Clerk in the Admiralty, has been retired; from what date; and, on what terms as regards pension?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. FORWOOD) (Lancashire, Ormskirk)
In reply to the hon. Member for Worcester I have to say that it has been arranged for Mr. Cox to retire, and that negotiations are pending with the Treasury to determine the terms of pension, pending the settlement of which the date of retirement has not been fixed; but I will urge the matter forward to a conclusion.
