HC Deb 25 January 1961 vol 633 cc23-4W
61. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Defence whether the special resettlement grants set out in the White Paper on Compensation for Premature Retirement from the Armed Forces, Command Paper No. 231, are still in force.

Mr. Watkinson

Yes. But they will cease from 1st April, 1962, in view of the relatively small numbers whose services will be prematurely terminated after that date. Special capital payments for those prematurely retired will continue.
