HC Deb 10 November 1926 vol 199 c1083

also asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that under the Superannuation Act, 1834, persons in receipt of a pension in respect of past service in a Government Department are deprived of part of their pension if subsequently they obtain a new appointment in another Government Department, provided their pension and the emoluments of the new position exceed the emoluments of the old position; and if he is prepared to consider an amendment of the Act?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I can see no reason for an amendment of the law on this subject.
