§ LORD MITCHISON
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What progress has been made in considering the recommendation of the Fulton Committee that a method of amending Civil Service superannuation terms otherwise than by legislation should be looked for.188WA
§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (LORD SHACKLETON)
It has been agreed in principle between Staff and Official Sides that, subject to Parliamentary approval, the Civil Service superannuation scheme should be put on to a non-statutory basis under general enabling powers. There will be detailed discussions on the precise form of the new arrangements. Subject to the satisfactory outcome of these discussions, the necessary legislation will be presented to Parliament in due course.
House adjourned at fourteen minutes before seven o'clock.
