HC Deb 08 September 1909 vol 10 cc1453-4W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider the advisability of extending the benefits of the recent general increase in the rate of pensions which has been awarded to all chief petty officers on a scale equitable to their rank, to the senior chief petty officer writers entered under the late Mr. Childers' scheme, who have and are at present only receiving the pensions that are awarded to a much inferior rank?


The case of these naval writers has been already carefully considered, but it is not intended to extend the concession to them, as their employment was under conditions differing from those to whom the increased rate was granted in 1903.
