HC Deb 31 July 1923 vol 167 c1241
8. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the President of the Board of Trade what pensions are being paid from pilotage funds to the retired servants of the Pilotage Department of the London Trinity House; and what is the maximum pension being paid from the pilotage funds of the London Trinity House to any pilot retired from service in the area under the jurisdiction of the London Trinity House?


I am informed by Trinity House that there are no retired officials of the headquarter's staff of the Pilotage Department of Trinity House in receipt of a pension from the pilots fund. A former ruler of pilots at Gravesend is in receipt of a pension of £87 8s. per annum from the fund. The maximum pension which can now be granted to a retired London Trinity House pilot is £50 per annum, plus a bonus of 20 per cent., which latter will be increased to 50 per cent. on the 1st January, 1924.
