HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 c247W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that teachers who have undertaken National Service are credited with their full period in the forces for pension purposes instead of the current practice of allowing 50 per cent. only of such Service time.

Mr. Armstrong

Where a teacher was in pensionable teaching service before undertaking compulsory National Service, it is reckoned in full for pension.
