§ Mr. LEWIS
asked the Postmaster-General on what grounds the annuity value of his additional allowance has been deducted from the amount of compensation payable to Mr. F. W. Spall, of 19, Cedars Road, Colchester, in respect of his premature retirement due to injuries received while on duty as a postman?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The additional allowance awarded under the Superannuation Acts is, I am advised, a payment, allowance or benefit to which, under the Workmen's Compensation Act, regard must be had in fixing the amount of compensation. The annuity value of the allowance is not being deducted from the amount of compensation payable to Mr. Spall, but was taken into account in fixing that amount.
