asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the rate of pension for a retired lieut.-commander at the end of 1939–45 war; and what variations have taken place since.

£440 a year was the rate at the end of the war. This has now been increased to £448 5s. A supplement for war service is also payable subject to an overriding maximum of £475. For officers who retired between 19th December, 1945, and 31st August, 1950, the rate is £475; and for those who have retired since then, £500.
