HC Deb 26 November 1982 vol 32 c593W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister what rules govern the abatement of pensions of senior civil servants who are subsequently appointed as special advisers by Ministers.

The Prime Minister

Retired civil servants employed as special advisers by Ministers are subject to the provision under which the pensions of retired officers re-employed elsewhere in the Civil Service are liable to abatement—rule 3.26 of the principal Civil Service pension scheme.
