§ 12. Colonel YATE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the pensions of naval ratings have been paid from 4th August, 1914, as they became due, although the men were kept on in the Service; and, if so, was the same rule applied to the officers?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Yes, Sir. As regards the second part of the question the Regulations do not admit of retired pay being paid to Naval and Marine officers concurrently with full pay.
