§ Mr. Dormand
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether for the purpose of local government superannuation in the reckoning of pre-entry war service, he will include in the definition of war service whole-time service with the Royal Navy, the Army, and the Royal Air Force Institutes; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. King
No. For the purpose of these regulations war service will be limited to service with the Armed Forces, the Merchant Navy, Mercantile Marine and equivalent women's services. This definition has been used by every public service pension scheme which has introduced a war service concession, and cannot be varied for the local government scheme.
