HC Deb 05 March 1981 vol 1000 cc159-60W
Mr. Beith

asked the Attorney-General what is the total number of holders of judicial appointments and retired holders of judicial appointments who have had, or are entitled to have, their pensions calculated on a basis which includes an accrual rate of one-fortieth of annual salary.

The Attorney-General

On 27 February the holders of judicial appointments whose pensions fell within the general responsibility of the Lord Chancellor and who were eligible to have their pensions calculated on the basis referred to were as follows:

Lord Chief Justice of England 1
Master of the Rolls 1
Lords of Appeal in Ordinary 9
President of the Family Division 1
Lords Justices 18
High Court Judges 74
President and Members, Lands Tribunal 6
Circuit Judges 325
Judge Advocate General 1
Masters and Registrars of the Supreme Court (not including Registrars, Chancery Division) 44
Stipendiary Magistrates 54
Lord Chancellor's Legal Visitor 1
President, Pensions Appeal Tribunal 1
County Court Registrars 148

Some holders of these posts who were within the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme on first appointment may have elected to remain within it, in which case their pensions would be based on a 1/80th accrual rate.

I understand that 167 pensions in respect of former office holders listed above and 153 pensions in respect of their dependants were in payment on that day.
