§ Mr. HOHLER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, whether, with a view to facilitate the payment of naval pensions, he would consider the desirability, and in conjunction with the Postmaster-General arrange, for the signature of pensioners' life certificates by Post Office officials, to whom the pensioners are usually better known, than by the persons at present authorised to sign such certificates?
§ Mr. McKENNA
A large number of Post Office officials are qualified to attest life certificates of pensioners. Under the Post Office regulations, however, no individual is allowed to do so if he is also the paying officer. I am not prepared at present to recommend any change, but the matter will be carefully considered in consultation with the Postmaster-General.
