HC Deb 14 July 1971 vol 821 c99W
46. Mr. Leonard

asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will seek to introduce legislation to ensure that the unestablished service of civil servants shall count fully for pension purposes.

Mr. David Howell

The future pensionability of unestablished service is being considered in the Joint Whitley Committee reviewing Civil Service superannuation ; but my right hon. and noble Friend has told the National Staff Side that the Government cannot concede the long-standing claim that unestablished service before 14th July, 1949 should now reckon in full.
