§ Mr. A. HERBERT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs 726W what has been the pension and the War bonus paid to Consuls-General who retired before 1917?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
A Consul-General who retired before 1917 would be entitled to superannuation under the Superannuation Acts, 1834 to 1914, based on his salary (i.e., in most cases on a salary of £900, £1,000 or £1,200) and on his years of service. He would not be entitled to any supplementary pension.
