Pay and Allowances etc for men who have re-entered the RN
At the Court at Windsor Castle, the 19th day of April, 1933.

Present, The King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas there was this day read at the Board a Memorial from the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, dated the 17th day of March, 1933 (P.M. 314/32), in the words following, viz.:-

Whereas by Section 3 of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, it is enacted, inter alia, that all pay, pensions or other allowances in the nature thereof payable in respect of services in Your Majesty's Naval or Marine Force to a person being or having been an Officer, Seaman or Marine therein shall be paid in such manner and subject to such restrictions, conditions and provisions as are from time to time directed by Order in Council:

And whereas Your Majesty was graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council bearing date the 15th May, 1930, to sanction revised scales of pension for men and boys entered or re-entered after a break in service in Your Majesty's Naval or Marine Force after the 31st day of March, 1930:

And whereas by Your Majesty's Order in Council bearing date the 7th February, 1933, these revised scales were extended, subject to certain reservations, to all men who on the 30th day of September, 1931, were not already serving in the final term of engagement which would qualify them for a pension on discharge:

And whereas we are of opinion that the revised scales should not apply to certain men who have been invalided and have re-entered within twelve months:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to direct that men who shall have been invalided from Your Majesty's Naval Force and shall have re-entered within twelve months of their discharge, shall, notwithstanding that such re-entry shall have been subsequent to the 31st day of Marsh, 1930, count the whole or part of their time for long service pension and for service and rank elements of disability pension at the rates, and under the conditions, laid down in Your Majesty's Orders in Council bearing dates the 7th February, 1921, 6th February, 1922, and 12th February, 1923, provided and to the extent that they be otherwise eligible therefor under the regulations by which the award of their pensions shall be governed.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in this proposal.

His Majesty, having taken the said memorial into consideration, was pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to approve of what is therein proposed.

And the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.
M. P. A. Hankey.
