HC Deb 28 April 1938 vol 335 c324W
Lieut.-Colonel Guest

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many special concessions have been granted for the Greenwich Hospital pensions to lieutenants and lieutenant-commanders, retired, promoted from the ranks of the Royal Navy; and whether the Lords of the Admiralty propose to grant further concessions up to the number of 19, as promised?

Mr. Shakespeare:

The number of Greenwich Hospital pensions held by lieutenants and lieutenant-commanders ex warrant-rank is at present 14, and will eventually be increased to 19. This increase is part of a general re-allocation of the pensions, and can only be effected as pensions become available for transfer from one branch to another on the death of the present holders.
