HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 cc1632-3W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the cases of ex-Warders Richard Bailey, Pentonville, John Williams, the late James Silvester, Parkhurst, and the late Sidney Aggett, Rochester, who were officially recalled for duty in the prison service in 1918, after they had reached the age of 60 years, under Section 11 of the Superannuation Act of 1859; and whether, as the Section in question exempts persons from service after reaching the age of 60 years, in the special circumstances he will consider such extended service for superannuation purposes?


The eases of these officers have been under consideration, but as they were over 60 at the date of recall, the Treasury have felt themselves precluded by the terms of the Superannuation Act, 1859, from counting the additional service for pension.
