§ Mr. Thorne
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what members of His Majesty's Government are in receipt of service pensions and also in receipt of Parliamentary salaries?
§ Sir J. Simon
I presume that by Parliamentary salaries the hon. Member means Ministerial salaries: Ministers who receive such salaries do not also receive any salary as Members of Parliament. No member of His Majesty's Government is receiving, in addition to his Ministerial salary, any pension or any half-pay in respect of service with His Majesty's Forces. Two Ministers, namely, the Minister without Portfolio and the Secretary of State for the Home Department, are in receipt of Civil Service pensions, earned in respect of their past service under the Crown.
