Captain F. J. Dargavage, Accounting and Finance Officer, requested an advance decision concerning a member's claim for reimbursement of charges incurred for reconnecting his private telephone when he was required to move to other Government quarters due to a renovation project. The member's contention that a related holding in a previous decision should be applied retroactively was rejected since that decision did not constitute an original interpretation of a statute but modified previous decisions and thus was applicable only to that case and future cases.
