§ Mr. Andrew E Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services for how many days from 21st February 1974 to 30th April 1975 the Chairman of the Reserve Pension Board actually worked as chairman; and what proposals he has made for a pension relating to this period of employment.
§ Mr. O'Malley
The Reserve Pension Board was an independent statutory body. The appointment of the Chairman was made on a full-time basis and covered the whole period between the678W dates mentioned. On the question of pension rights, the position has not changed since my reply to my hon. Friend on 23rd January.—[Vol. 903, c. 597.]
