HC Deb 12 June 1913 vol 53 c1793W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, on the analogy of the case of the naval shipwrights, who are considered, when subsequently serving in dockyards, to be serving in the same capacity, and consequently allowed to count towards civil superannuation their years of naval service, he will now grant the like permission to ex-Royal Engineers doing civil work in the service of the Post Office?


Naval shipwrights are not under the Superannuation Acts, but are pensionable in respect of their whole service in that capacity under Admiralty Orders in Council. My right hon. Friend has no power under the Superannuation Acts to extend this arrangement to the case of Royal Engineers serving under the Post Office.
