§ Mr. WILKIE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that men retiring on the age limit from His Majesty's dockyards are receiving 1613W pensions that are quite inadequate with the present high cost of living, having only received an increase of 40 per cent. over pre-War; and is he prepared to request his Department to consider a further increase on their pensions as will be commensurate with the present high prices now prevailing in the cost of living?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
This question is at present under consideration by the Treasury, and I have no doubt that a decision will be announced shortly.
