§ 9. Sir B. FALLE
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that naval officers retired upon the special terms granted in 1922, for the purpose of clearing the lists, as eligible for disability pensions even though seriously disabled; that naval officers who retired under this scheme were not informed that they would forfeit all claim to a disability pension; and whether he will consider a revision of this decision?
The position with regard to these eases was fully explained in the detailed answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend on the 7th June, 1923, a copy of which I am sending him. The officers referred to are not ineligible for disability retired pay, subject to the conditions stated in the answer.
