HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c48W
61. Mr. Patrick Jenkin

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why, upon her retirement from the service of the Greater London Council, the pension payable to Mrs. M. I. Giffin, of 29, Grenville Gardens, Woodford Green, will not take account of her 10 years of Government service between 1940 and 1949.

Mr. MacColl

The local government superannuation scheme does not give credit for service prior to local authority employment unless it is covered by interchange rules providing for the payment of a transfer value. Mrs. Giffin's Government service was unestablished and non-pensionable so that no pension rights were transferable when she moved to local government employment.
