§ Mr. Randall
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what plans he has to review pensions given to civil service employees who started their employment prior to 1949 and who receive half pensions for that period.

The Government have no plans to change the basis upon which service before 1949 is taken into account for the purposes of a civil service pension.
