HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 c97W
110. Mr. L. Thomas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total number of serving civil servants whose temporary or unestablished service does not count for superannuation; and what would be the cost in a full year if such service was counted in full.

Mr. Powell

There are about 475,000 serving civil servants whose unestablished service does not reckon in full for pension purposes. If such service were reckoned in full, the extra cost would be £5½ million in 1958–59, rising to £10 million in 1973–74 and continuing at least at that level until about the end of the century.
