HC Deb 06 July 1950 vol 477 c629
41. Mr. Odey

asked the Minister of Health whether he will take steps to deal with those cases of superannuation of individuals transferring from one Government service to another which occurred before 4th February, 1948, and who are, therefore, not covered by the Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1948.

Mr. Bevan

I understand the hon. Member has in mind transfer from local government service. The Act referred to provided for the maintenance of certain superannuation rights and I can hold out no prospect of making reckonable rights which had already been relinquished before 4th February, 1948, the date of introduction of the Bill for that Act.

Mr. Odey

Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that in cases where local government officers have been transferred to national work they have no right to superannuation for their services before the date mentioned, in 1948, and there are very grave injustices of which I have sent him particulars?
