39. Mr. T. WILSON
asked whether ex-postmen who resume employment temporarily in the Post Office have their superannuation pay stopped during the time that they are so employed?
The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Pike Pease)
As stated on the 12th of July last in reply to a question by the hon. Member for the Melton Division the practice of the Post Office is to pay re-employed pensioners at the full rate for the services they perform, and to withhold such part of the pension payments as may be necessary to comply with the terms of Section 20 of the Superannuation Act of 1834. This Section requires that no more of the pension shall be paid than with the salary on re-employment shall equal the salary at the date of retirement.
