§ 69. Mr. W. J. Brown
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is prepared to modify the provisions laid down in the 1834 Superannuation Act relating to the conditions under which retired Government officials are reemployed, in view of the fact that those conditions are less favourable than the conditions granted to recipients of service pensions who are recalled and are, in fact, discouraging retired officials whose experience would be valuable to the State, from accepting re-employment in Government departments?
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Assheton)
No, Sir. I have no evidence that present arrangements are having the discouraging effect suggested by my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. Assheton
The circumstances are different. In any case it is not possible to discuss it adequately by Question and answer.
