Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):
It will be remembered
that a custom grew up whereby those who on retirement were given six months' leave with pay might begin at once to receive their pension. The six months' salary was paid when the leave began, less the amount of pension for that period, thus enabling pension to begin immediately on leave being granted.
