HC Deb 07 May 1894 vol 24 c463
MR. J. ROWLANDS (Finsbury, E.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he has received Memorials from the officers who were in the employ of the late Submarine Telegraph Company, asking that their period of service with the Company should be recognised towards their pension; and whether any steps have been taken to deal with the claims put forward in the Memorials?


The last Memorial on the subject which has reached my hands was dated the 23rd of October last, and it was answered on the 10th of the following month. The subject has, on more than one occasion, been considered by the Treasury, and the officers in question are aware not only of the steps which have been taken to deal with their representations, but also with the result.
