HC Deb 08 February 1965 vol 706 cc3-4W
45 and 46. Mr. Charles R. Morris

asked the Minister of Health (1) how many employees have been affected by anomalies inherent within the Hospital Services Superannuation Regulations such as that now revealed in the circumstances of Mr. John Wood of 236, Phillips Park Road, Bradford, Manchester, 11, who on entering employment with the hospital service in 1962 paid £409 8s. 4d. in order to preserve his superannuation rights, but was informed on resignation from the hospital service, after two years' service, that his entitlement was £350 9s. 8d.;

(2) whether he will initiate legislation to ensure that employees, who on entering the hospital service have paid sums of money in order to preserve their superannuation rights, do not on subsequent resignation receive less than the sum which they originally contributed.

Mr. K. Robinson

There have been two other cases similar to that of Mr. Wood. I see no need for legislation.
