HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 c1708W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether Civil Service pensions are assigned in cases of bankruptcy to a trustee or other person acting on behalf of the creditor?


I would call the hon. Member's attention to Section 51, Sub-section (2) of the Bankruptcy Act, 1914, which provides (inter alia) that the court on the application of the trustee shall make such order as it thinks fit for the payment to the trustee of any pension granted by the Treasury or any part of it to be applied as the court may direct.
