§ 52. Captain CLIVE
asked whether, in view of the admitted dissatisfaction among Army officers at the deductions under Section 6 of the Superannuation Act, 1887, from the pensions that they have earned, and the comparatively small saving to the State resulting from it, the Government will introduce a Bill to abolish these deductions?
§ 53. Colonel YATE
asked whether, in view of the dissatisfaction caused to pensioners by the deductions made from their pay in any appointment the pay of which is derived from a public fund, he will consider the question of altering the present rules?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
If, as I assume to be the case, the hon. and gallant Member refers to retired officers of the Army and Navy employed in civil posts, the deductions are made under Statute and I have no power to alter them.
