§ Sir GEORGE KEKEWICH
asked the Secretary to the Treasury why men promoted to the establishment in His Majesty's Customs are allowed to count for pension only half their unestablished service, seeing that their unestablished service is exactly similar in character to their established service following; that the practice of the Treasury is to count unestablished service for pension in such circumstances; and whether he can see his way to act in their case on the ordinary practice of the Treasury?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Charles Hobhouse)
The cases referred to have been dealt with strictly in accordance with the principles explained in the answer which I gave to the hon. Member on 28th June and 27th April last.
