§ 124. Mr. Medland
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that when retired officers are recalled to the active service list the period of service is not assessed for retired pay and, having regard to the fact that while on active service a retired officer receives only 25 percent. of his retired pay, if he will place the officers on the same footing as the ratings with full pension and full pay for their rank when recalled.
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 6th February to the hon. and gallant Member for Stafford (Captain Swingler).
