HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 c1838W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if his attention has been drawn to the fact that first and second-class masters and first engineers of War Department vessels have been made eligible for pensions, irrespective of age, but second engineers have not become so entitled; and whether he will consider the advisability of placing second engineers on an equality in this respect with second-class masters?


The question of the classes to be admitted to pension was fully considered when pensions for this establishment were introduced in 1917, and it is not now proposed to reopen it.
