asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he will ensure that the pensions of Royal Navy and Royal Marine personnel are not unduly held up when they leave the Service, as this practice causes hardship to pensioners.
Does the hon. Gentleman appreciate the great hardship which is caused by a man's not getting his pension immediately he comes out? I raised two points recently with him on that. Will he please try to see that in future men get their pensions within a fortnight?
