HC Deb 08 July 1875 vol 225 c1141

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that whereas in the Minute of the 21st December 1846 teachers of "normal" and "elementary" schools are put upon the same footing with regard to pensions, no mention is made of teachers in normal schools in the Minute of the 26th of June 1875; and, whether the Privy Council will take the case of teachers in training colleges into their favourable consideration?


Sir, it was not our intention to treat, as regarded pensions, the certificated teachers of normal schools differently from those of the elementary schools. If, therefore, it should appear that there is good ground for supposing that their claims could not be considered under the Pension Minute recently issued, we will take care to set the matter right.
