§ 37. Mr. T. SMITH
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that employés at an Admiralty depot, Sheffield, are dismissed without pension on reaching the age of 60; and whether this is due to any order or regulation; and, if so, will he make such order or regulation available for Members of this House?
The PARLIAMNTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Lord Stanley)
Admiralty employés at Sheffield are subject to the same regulations as regards discharge for age as employés at other Admiralty establishments. On discharge their eligibility for pensions and gratuities is determined with reference to the provisions of the Superannuation Acts, which do not provide for the grant of pension or gratuity in all cases, but only where certain conditions as to service are satisfied.
