HC Deb 05 February 1926 vol 191 cc507-8W
Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Minister of Health what is the number, grade, and basic salary of men and women, respectively, above the lower clerical employed at Acton and at White-hall on the work in connection with the Widows', Orphans' and ad Age Contributory Pensions Act.


The numbers, grades and basic salaries of men and women, above the clerical grade, employed on work in connection with the Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Act at Acton and Whitehall are as follow:

new scheme; and, if so, what benefits, if any, will accrue to him or his wife who is of the same age?


The man in question will be entitled to an old age pension in June, 1930, subject to his satisfying the contribution tests imposed by the Act and, should he become entitled to a pension, his wife will also be entitled on the same date. Although he himself will no longer be liable to pay contributions after he attains 65, should he continue to be employed contributions will be payable by his employer, and these contributions will count towards satisfying the average test which has to be applied to the last three contribution years of his insurance.
