§ 49. Mr. THORNE
asked the Home Secretary whether the employés under the Carlisle State Management scheme are designated as civil servants; and, if so, whether they will be entitled to participate in the Government's Civil Service superannuation scheme?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The employés under the Carlisle State Management Scheme fall to be dealt with under the Superannuation Acts applicable to the Civil Service. The supervisory and clerical staffs are normally established civil servants. The industrial employés are unestablished.
§ Mr. THORNE
Can the Home Secretary give any reason why these men and women are not recognised as civil servants, as they are working for the State in exactly the same way as anybody else?
