HC Deb 24 May 1900 vol 83 c1096
COLONEL KENYON-SLANEY (Shropshire, Newport)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the Secretary of State will consider such an alteration in the standing Army Orders as would permit officers serving in the Militia above the rank of major, and by age free of compulory liability to service, to receive, while embodied, any retired pay or pension they may be drawing, as well as the pay which may attach to their existing rank.


Militia officers are under a compulsory liability to serve on embodiment. The Secretary of State is not prepared to alter the rule that no officer may draw full pay and retired pay at the same time.
