HC Deb 09 August 1898 vol 64 cc651-2
MR. LODER (Brighton)

On behalf of the honourable Member for the Totnes Division of Devon I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has come to a decision with regard to the claims of those employed for many years Upon the permanent repair staff on the Plymouth Breakwater to a pension on superannuation?


The case of these men has been considered in great detail by the Department charged with the administration of the Superannuation Acts. It has been decided that the men are not entitled to pensions-under those Acts, and they were informed of this decision in January last. The gratuities to which they were entitled on discharge have already been paid to them.
