§ MR. E. J. C. MORTON (Devonport)
I beg to ask the Civil Lord of 656 the Admiralty if he is now able to state what steps the Admiralty will take to ensure that all those qualified to receive Greenwich Age Pensions shall receive them?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. E. ROBERTSON,) Dundee
The Treasury having assented to the recommendation of the Committee on Greenwich Hospital Age Pensions that a sum of £16,000 a year shall be added from Naval Funds to the amount previously available for these pensions, additional pensions to this amount will be granted from 1st October next. An explanatory statement on this subject will be laid on the Table in a few days.
