HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 cc177-8W
22. Mr. Grieve

asked the Minister of State for Defence what proposals he has for enabling army pensions to be paid direct into Post Office Giro accounts.

Mr. Blaker

Army pensions of men below commissioned rank may be paid direct into a National Giro account if they wish. The method of payment of army officers' retired pay is a matter for the Paymaster-General's office.
