§ 77. Mr. JANNER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if any consequential claims arose as a result of bringing under the terms of the Jerram award those marine pensioners who served in the Army as officers during the Great War?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lord Stanley)
The long-service pensions of Royal Marine pensioners, who had commissioned Army service during the War, were re-assessed under the Jerram award until 1924, when they were granted retired pay on the appropriate post-war Marine scale. In 1834 view of the special status of these officers, no consequential claims could arise.
§ Mr. JANNER
Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that the award has proved satisfactory and reasonable?
