§ Lieut.-Colonel SPENDER-CLAY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can give the approximate increased charge to the State if members of the Civil Service were allowed to count previous non-pensionable service with the colours for Civil Service pensions?
§ Major BOYD-CARPENTER
There are so many unknown factors involved in this calculation that I am unable to give my hon. and gallant Friend a reliable estimate of the approximate cost, but it is clear that it would be very large.
