§ 51. Sir B. FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider allowing such naval pensioners as may so wish the privilege of having their pensions paid into a bank instead of compelling payment through a post office, in view of the fact that no additional cost would be involved by the concession?
The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Sir Bolton Eyres Mansell)
As indicated in my reply of the 12th instant, additional cost would be involved by the adoption of a dual system for the payment of naval pensions. The extra expense would be in respect of the consequent increase of staff at the Admiralty.
