HC Deb 02 April 1925 vol 182 cc1474-5
105. Mr. W. M. ADAMSON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the desirability of setting aside certain moneys for the payment of gratuities to ex-service unestablished officers of the Civil Service whose services are dispensed with on the ground of age, infirmity, or reduction of staff of a similar nature to the gratuities payable under the Superannuation Act, 1887, and in the case of the death of unestablished officers under the Superannuation Act, 1914?


Ex-service unestablished officers employed in Government Departments, whether employed on a temporary basis or—in accordance with arrangements recently made—on a permanent unestablished basis, will be eligible for the benefits conferred by Section 4 of the Superannuation Act, 1887, and Section 3 of the Superannuation Act, 1914, and for this purpose will be allowed, subject to the usual conditions, to count all service in the Civil Service rendered after 31st August, 1921, except in certain cases in which, under existing arrangements, service prior to that date is also allowed to count.


Will the right hon. Gentleman review the whole question?
