§ Major HORE-BELISHA
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if the present Admiralty Regulations provide, in the event of naval and marine 2959W 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?
§ Mr. AMMON
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a statutory provision, but the Regulations under which they counted their war service for increase of pension have been withdrawn in association with the introduction of the improved post-War (Jerram) scales.
