HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 c1952
75. Sir P. MAGNUS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why a difference is made between the total amount of remuneration granted to retired medical officers and others receiving civil superannuation allowances who have accepted fresh service under the military authorities and the amount of remuneration, including supernnuation allowance, granted to retired naval and military officers who have similarly undertaken new duties in either of the two Services?


The issue of superannuation allowances to retired Civil servants who are reappointed to any civil office is governed by the provisions of Section 20 of the Superannuation Act, 1834. The differences in the regulations applicable to naval or military service, on the one hand, and the civil service on the other, are due largely to historical reasons, and the conditions of the services are too dissimilar to enable any useful comparison to be drawn in this respect.

Colonel YATE

Has the right hon. Gentleman taken into consideration the question of giving an officer who is to be employed his full pension without question, and make his pay equal to the difference between that and the amount he was drawing when last employed?


I shall have to have notice of that question.
