§ MR. VERNEY (Warwickshire, Rugby)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether his attention has been called to the case of Mr. Worthington, a retired school teacher, who is receiving a pension of £25 a year after 40 years' service; and whether the Education Department will consider his claims to, an increase in his pension?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir J. GORST, Cambridge University)
This teacher's pension was awarded in 1890, after a full consideration of his claims. The Committee of Council see no reason for increasing it.
