HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 cc2131-2
90. Mr. Parker

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that many retired officers who have been called up feel a strong sense of injustice because of the disproportionate size of the deductions now made from their pay towards pensions which they have commuted; and whether he will look into this matter?

The Civil Lord of the Admiralty (Captain Austin Hudson)

I am not aware of any general feeling of injustice in the matter to which the hon. Member refers. The deductions, which are required by the Pensions Commutation Acts, are always equal to the amount of the retired pay commuted.
