HC Deb 21 March 1973 vol 853 c143W
Mr. Lambie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make provision for those teachers at present in service who will be denied full pension rights, because of the fact that their university course was interrupted by war service during 1939 to 1945, following the review of the Scottish teachers' superannuation scheme.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I intend to make regulations later this year to enable teachers in pensionable service after 1st April 1972 to be able, subject to Inland Revenue limitations, to buy in as pensionable service at full cost any period after the age of 20 which they would not otherwise be entitled to count for pension, including any period of war service which is not pensionable under the Education (Scotland) (War Service Superannuation) Act 1939.
