§ 68. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many retired employees of the Government who have 19W done more than 25 years' service are without superannuation; how many employees are due for retirement this year, after 25 years' service; and how many of these will be entitled to pensions or gratuities.
I regret that this information is not available, but all civil servants who retire with more than 25 years' service normally receive a pension and lump sum if they are established, or a gratuity if they are unestablished.
§ 70. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why pensions for pension and pensions increase for clerical officers, executive officers and senior executive officers after 40 years' service were less on 1st April, 1949, than 1st April, 1939; and why those of higher executive officers and chief executive officers were higher.
These small variations arise from the provisions of the Pensions (Increase) Acts. They could only have been avoided by even more complicated legislation.
