HC Deb 22 November 1926 vol 200 cc17-8

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether men invalided and in receipt of a Naval Service Pension are eligible for the Greenwich Age Pension of 5d. and 9d. per day on attaining the age of 55 and 65, respectively?


The answer is Li the affirmative, except so far as men who entered or (after a break in service) reentered the Service after the 3rd October, 1925, are concerned. Such men are not eligible for the increased pension of 9d. a day. I would also refer my hon. and, gallant Friend to the reply given to his question of the 4th May, 1925, in regard to pensions paid to naval ratings by the Ministry of Pensions (OFFICIAL REPORT, col. 535).
