HC Deb 02 March 1905 vol 142 c175

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will consider the advisability of granting full pensions to male teachers upon the completion of thirty-five years service, and thirty years for females, and in case of disablements after ten years service.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) The pensions under existing regulations are as high as is consistent with the solvency of the pension fund, and I cannot undertake, as at present advised, to alter them.
