HC Deb 11 August 1911 vol 29 c1522

Subject to the provisions of this Act, in the application of Section four of the Superannuation Act, 1887, to a transferred officer who is not on his transfer or subsequently appointed to a pensionable office in the Post Office, continuous service with the company shall be treated as service in the office to which the officer is first transferred for the purpose of calculating the qualifying periods mentioned in that Section.

This is a staff matter. It represents a concession which I think will be welcomed by the staff. It provides that service with the company may count towards the qualifying period in regard to gratuities to un-established officers.

Clause read a second time, and added to the Bill.

Committee report Progress; to sit again on Monday next.
