HC Deb 18 November 1971 vol 826 cc204-5W
Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services on what date Mrs. Joan Mary Sheldon, of 129 High Street, Chellaston, Derby, became an established officer of the Civil Service; when, and on what grounds, she was given notice of termination; and what service was taken into account for compensation, gratuity, or superannuation purposes.

Sir K. Joseph

On 21st February, 1967. She was given notice on 30th June, 1970, of termination of employment on the grounds that her continued irregular attendance made her unfitted for a permanent post.

The question of service compensation does not arise because the Superannuation Act, 1965, does not provide for an award in these circumstances.
