HC Deb 02 March 1893 vol 9 c814

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, in view of the fact that first-class men of the Royal Naval Reserve, when they finish their term of service in the Reserve, do not at once receive their pension, but have to wait for it till they attain the age of 60, and that many of them die before attaining that age, and thus lose their pension altogether, whether it would not be possible, on such men ending their service in the Reserve, to give them a pension to commence then and there, and thus to add to the inducements to enter the Reserve?


No, Sir; it is not proposed to make any such change in the conditions of service of the first class of the Royal Naval Reserve.
