HC Deb 28 July 1949 vol 467 cc167-8W
80. Mr. Beswick

asked the Minister of Works how many people employed by his Department as maintenance engineers at the Palace of Westminster have given more than 50 years service, yet are not pensionable.

Mr. Key

Only one. He is ineligible for a pension because he was above the maximum qualifying age on 16th January, 1948, when the scheme of establishment of Government industrial employees was introduced.
