HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 cc256-7W
130. Mr. Perkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what superannuation scheme exists for non-established civil servants employed at Civil Defence schools.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

Unestablished civil servants at Civil Defence schools are in the same position as other unestablished civil servants. They receive no pension, but Section 39 of the Superannuation Act, 1949, permits the award of a gratuity on retirement or resignation after not less than seven years continuous service.
