asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will circulate to Members, or place in the Library of the House, copies of a Circular issued recently to area officers of the Ministry, instructing them as to procedure in cases excluded by the operation of the seven years' limit from assessment for pension under existing Royal Warrants?
§ Major TRYON
The instruction referred to, like all other instructions to the staff, is issued solely for the guidance of officers of the Ministry in the discharge of their technical duties. I am not prepared to initiate a departure from the normal practice of all Public Departments, by adopting the suggestion of the hon. Member.
