HC Deb 30 July 1946 vol 426 cc143-4W
114. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the dissatisfaction and resentment caused among officers by the provision in the postwar pay code, for the commencement only at 21 years of age, of service to count for retired pay; and if he will reintroduce the old rule whereby all service from the date of first commissioning counted towards eligibility for retired pay in due course.

Mr. Lawson

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Banbury (Mr. Dodds-Parker) on 4th June last.
