§ Mr. Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the current pension entitlements of the chief officers of English water authorities arising out of their employment as such.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
Chief officers, like all other employees of regional water authorities in England, are covered by the local government superannuation scheme by virtue of the inclusion of water authorities in schedule 1 to the Local Government Superannuation Regulations 1974.
The scheme normally provides a retirement pension at the rate of one eightieth of the officer's final year's pensionable salary for each year of reckonable service. A lump sum retiring allowance of three eightieths of the same salary for each year of reckonable service is also provided for. The lump sum is reduced for married men to one eightieth of their salary for each year of reckonable service before 1 April 1972.
