§ 51. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Prime Minister whether officers of His Majesty's-Forces, retired on half-pay, who have been recalled to serve, are receiving full salary in addition to the half-pay retiring allowance; and is he aware that retired or pensioned postmen who offer their services for re-employment during the War have, in effect, to forfeit their pensions on re-engagement and are not allowed to receive in the aggregate a greater salary than that they were receiving at the time of retirement?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
With regard to officers of His Majesty's Forces retired on half-pay and recalled to service, I am informed that half-pay is not given in addition to full pay in any case. The case to officers of His Majesty's Forces retired governed by Section 20 of the Superannuation Act of 1834.
