§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty why the pension of 12s. per week of W. Robinson, St. George's Square, Portsea, Portsmouth, ex[...]prison warder, is being withheld while W. Robinson is working in His Majesty's Dockyard, Portsmouth?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
I have been asked to reply. Mr. W. H. Robinson is in receipt of a pension as a former established civil servant. Under Section 20 of the Superannuation Act of 1834 his pension ceases to be paid on re-employment by a Public Department if the remuneration of such employment is equal to or exceeds that of his former office.
