HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 c576
53. Mr. THORNE

asked the Minister of Health the number of local authorities operating the Superannuation Act, 1922; and whether it is his intention to introduce a short Bill making the Act compulsory?


650 local authorities are operating the Local Government and other Officers Superannuation Act, 1922. In reply to the second part of the question, I cannot say more than that I am very desirous of introducing legislation on the subject as soon as opportunity offers.


Does my right hon. Friend think any useful purpose will be served in urging upon local authorities who have not operated the Act to put it into operation at the earliest date?


I am receiving a deputation on that point very shortly, and shall be glad to do all that I can to press the matter on them.
