HC Deb 22 October 1946 vol 427 cc335-6W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the desirability that scientists in the Government services should possess outside industrial experience, he will make allowances in pension calculations for scientists who thus qualify themselves.

Mr. Dalton

Superannuation for most scientists in permanent Government employment is provided under the Federated Superannuation System for Universities, which also covers a number of industrial research associations. The system is expressly designed to facilitate interchange of staff between the constituent institutions without loss of accrued pension rights, but it is not possible to make any special allowance for service outside the System
