HC Deb 22 April 1913 vol 52 c233
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?


The answer is in the negative.

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?


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.
