I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether officers who have retired from the Army with a gratuity before having completed fifteen years of service, and have since, in accordance with the Army Regulations, been on active service with Militia Regiments in South Africa, will be allowed to count such service towards the completion of their fifteen years service; if so, whether, in the event of their repaying the gratuity received, they will be entitled to receive a pension at the usual rates in lieu of such gratuity, and whether interest upon the gratuity repaid will be payable.

The reply to the question is in the affirmative, but each case must be considered on its merits as to the exact amount to which an officer will be entitled.
