HC Deb 03 March 1919 vol 113 cc66-7W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that the President of the Local Government Board has appointed a Committee to consider whether it is desirable to introduce a scheme of superannuation applicable to the persons in the employment of local authorities in England and Wales; whether representations have been addressed to the Scottish Office towards the extension to Scotland of the Committee's inquiry or the appointment of a separate Committee of inquiry for Scotland; and what action he is prepared to take to place the superannuation of local government officers and servants in Scotland on an equal footing with such officers and servants in England and Wales?


The reply to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative. I am prepared to consider the expediency of an inquiry as suggested by my hon. Friend.
