§ Sir J. REMNANT
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if Royal Fleet Reserve pensioners are eligible for the increased pensions awarded under Admiral Jerram's Report, Section 51, seeing that they are pensioners now on rolls; and, if so, will he take immediate steps to extend to them the increased payments?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Long service pensioners belonging to Class A of the Royal Fleet Reserve are entitled to the revised scales of pension referred to in Decision 51 of the Jerram Committee Recommendations (Command Paper 149), provided that they have served during the War. This recommendation does not apply to Royal Fleet Reserve pensioners in Class B, who are granted a special flat rate of £12 per annum. It should be understood that these men have not served the full period of twenty-two years.
