HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 cc2958-9W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if the present Admiralty Regulations provide, in the event of naval and marine pensioners being recalled to service in case of national emergency, that such pensioners will be entitled to draw their pensions while serving and count their war service for additional pension; and, if so, whether he will give the reference to the present Regulation?


The Pension Regulations have been revised and the revision will be published shortly. I may inform the hon. Member, however, that pensioners recalled to service in emergency will continue to be entitled to draw their pensions while serving, as this is a statutory provision, but the Regulations under which they counted their war service for increase of pension have been withdrawn in association with the introduction of the improved post-War (Jerram) scales.
