§ 25. Major HORE-BELISHA
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if an officer in receipt of disability retired pay will suffer any reduction in his retired 352 pay as from the 1st July last, observing that another officer with a similar disability but not being a regular officer would not suffer any reduction?
§ Mr. AMMON
All rates of service retired pay are being reduced by 5½ per cent. approximately, and consequently the service element in any award of retired pay to a disabled officer has been reduced. Disablement elements are unaffected by the reduction, and consequently the retired pay of a disabled officer which includes no service element, will not be reduced.
