HC Deb 31 March 1910 vol 15 c1595W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty are aware of the number of men entitled to the Greenwich age pension who are at present anxiously awaiting payment of this pension; and if he will state what steps he intends to take to meet this position?


There are no men entitled to Greenwich Hospital age pensions. The Admiralty is, of course, aware that there is a large number of pensioners eligible for age pensions whose applications cannot be complied with, but every step has been taken to distribute these pensions as fully as the available funds will permit.
