§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."
§ MR. CALDWELL
asked whether teachers in the Isle of Man who had got a certificate from the Department were teachers in Great Britain, or were they under a different' system? Again, were the services of the teachers in the Isle of Man to be regarded as part of the services for pension?
§ * THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. JESSE COLLINGS, Birmingham,) Bordesley
said that in the Isle of 1448 Man the Education Code was adopted, and the teachers were certificated by the Department in the same way as in England; but they had none of the privileges of the Act of 1898. The object of the present Bill was to provide that the service in whole or in part in the Isle of Man should be recorded as service on which superannuation was based. The Bill was necessary because the education authorities in the Isle of Man had great difficulty in getting good teachers, because their services in the island were not recorded for superannuation purposes. The Bill had been framed by arrangement with the Treasury.
MR. T. M. HEALY
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he means to abolish the Parliaments of the Isle of Man and Jersey?
§ [No reply was given.]
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill read a second time, and committed for Monday next.
