HC Deb 14 February 1978 vol 944 c204W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Defence on what date DC1(RAF)S51/73, requiring a maximum refund of £750 from a retired officer's redundancy compensation, was cancelled; and whether this condition of employment was honoured by his Department right up to this date.

Mr. Wellbeloved

The relevant part of DC1(RAF)S51/73 was cancelled on 19th March 1976. Until then it was honoured in all cases where it applied. It did not, however, apply to officers who left the Royal Air Force under the 1975 redundancy scheme. That scheme was governed by DC1(RAF)S44/75, which made it clear that there was no fixed limit to the refund of special capital payment which might be required as a condition of taking up a retired officer post in a Government Department.
