HC Deb 07 May 1948 vol 450 c164W
Mr. Asterley Jones

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer in what circumstances civil servants who have retired are required to forego the whole or any part of their pensions upon entering into other remunerative employment.

Sir S. Cripps

Under Section 20 of the Superannuation Act, 1834, a civil servant who has retired and is "appointed to fill any office in any public department" may, whilst so employed, only receive so much of his pension as, when added to the pay of his new office, does not exceed the pay of his old office.
