§ Captain BOWYER
asked the Postmaster-General whether Mr. George Ridgway, of 33, High Street, Buckingham, after 16 years 8 months and 21 days' service is now in receipt of a pension amounting only to 6s. 6d. a week; whether he will have inquiries made into this case; and whether he can at least make this pension up to 10s. a week?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
I am aware that Mr. Ridgway is in receipt of a pension of 6s. 6d. a week. This amount is the maximum pension to which he is entitled under the Superannuation Acts (including the recent Pensions Increase Act). I regret that I have no power to increase his pension further.
