§ Mr. Kinnock
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that the service of teachers in Her Majesty's Forces during the Second World War will be taken into account in the determination of the superannuation entitlements on the same basis as that relating to participants in the local government superannuation scheme.
§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
The teachers' superannuation scheme has had provision to count towards pension the war service of its post-war entrants since 1975. It has now agreed with a number of other public service schemes, including local government, to extend the provision to members who have not benefited previously because of intervening membership of one of those schemes. The necessary regulations will be made as soon as possible.
