HC Deb 20 February 1929 vol 225 cc1135-6W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the section of the Superannuation Act, or particulars of any Treasury circular, under which re-established service over the age of 60 cannot be counted for pension?

the position remains generally the same as stated in my reply to the hon. Member's question on 22nd November last.


It is not usual to reemploy pensioners who have retired on attaining the age of 60. If, however, they are re-engaged for a limited period to meet an emergency, it is the regular practice to re-employ them in a temporary capacity only. There is no provision in the Superannuation Acts or Treasury circular on the point. Liability to recall to service under Section 11 of the Act of 1859 only extends to officers retired under 60 years of age.
