HC Deb 03 June 1935 vol 302 c1537W

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?


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.
