HC Deb 12 February 1965 vol 706 c145W
Sir L. Thomas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what would be the additional cost if the unestablished portion of a civil servant's service performed prior to 1949 was reckonable in full for superannuation purposes.

Mr. MacDermot

If current as well as future pensions were adjusted, about £300 million in all, over a long period of years. The cost in the first full year would be about £38 million, and the continuing cost in the early years thereafter would be between £8 million and £10 million a year. These figures relate to service between 1st January, 1919, and 14th July, 1949, as records of service before 1919 are incomplete.
