HC Deb 26 February 1931 vol 248 cc2313-4W

asked the Minister of Health the average period of service which a municipal employé has to serve to obtain a pension, assuming that he entered the service at the minimum age; what age would such an employé be when he retired; and what pension would he obtain?


I assume the hon. Member's question relates to areas in which the Local Government and Other Officers' Superannuation Act, 1922, is in force. The materials for a specific reply to his question are not available, but, putting aside the case of retirement on account of ill-health or infirmity, an employé would become entitled to a pension on attaining the age of 65, or at or after the age of 60 on completing 40 years' service, and his pension would be at the rate of 1/60th for each year of service (up to 40) of his average remuneration during the five years immediately preceding his retirement.
