§ Sir FREDERICK CAWLEY
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the dissatisfaction that is created through the delay in notifying civil servants as to whether they are accepted or rejected under the new Superannuation Act; and whether he will say what action he proposes to take to expedite such notification?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
Regard being had to the large mass of applications received and to the time required for their individual scrutiny, there does not seem to have been any avoidable delay in dealing with these applications. The decision of the Treasury has been notified as regards 97.5 per cent. of the applications received up to date; the decision on the outstanding cases (many of which have been delayed owing to the necessity of particular inquiries) will be notified at the earliest possible date.
