§ Lord APSLEY
asked the Minister of Health the number of local authorities which have not yet adopted the principle of superannuation contained in the Local Government and other Officers' Superannuation Act, 1922; and what is the policy of his Department with regard to such adoption?
Sir H. YOUNG
The authorities that have not availed themselves of the Act of 1922, or do not have schemes under local Acts, are (apart from parish councils and a number of miscellaneous authorities):
County Councils 13 County Borough Councils 16 Borough Councils 141 Metropolitan Borough Councils 2 Urban District Councils 348 Rural District Councils 246
My policy is to approve the adoption of the Act by local authorities on being satisfied that the procedure laid down by the Act has been followed.
