§ 14. Sir B. PETO
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, seeing that under Clause 5 of the scheme of retiring allowances for officers serving in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Service it is provided that only one-half of the time served prior to the 1st July, 1927, will be allowed to count as qualifying time for a retiring allowance, and this provision operates to the disadvantage of those officers who are senior in rank and who served throughout the Great War, he will reconsider the provision and, in any case, allow war service to count in full in assessing allowance on retirement under the scheme?
§ Sir B. PETO
Is the hon. Gentleman of opinion that service with the Royal 403 Fleet auxiliaries during the War was less worthy of pension than such service at present?
