§ 30. Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the scales of pension and contributions have not been revised for nearly 100 years; and if he will consider a revision of pensions and contributions of established men in the Royal Dockyards?
I cannot accept the hon. and gallant Member's statement that the pensions of established men working in His Majesty's Dockyards have not been revised for nearly 100 years. In common with those of other established civil servants, the scales of these pensions were revised by the Superannuation Act of 1909. The pensions are non-contributory and I do not propose to consider their revision.
