HC Deb 08 December 1975 vol 902 cc32-3W
Mr. Gow

asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he will list the seven special advisers to the Prime Minister, the period for which each has been appointed and the extent to which, if at all, each will become entitled, under existing Regulations, to a pension, whether inflation proof or not.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

The names of the Special Advisers are listed below.

Six have limited period appointments which are of not more than five years from their respective dates of appointment and which in any case cease when the present Administration ceases to hold office. The seventh is serving on a period of secondment which is due to be reviewed at the end of one year.

Of these only two are covered by the principal Civil Service Pension Scheme. If either of these were to complete five years' service he would become entitled, on reaching age 60, to a pension under the terms of that scheme.
