§ SIR HENRY CRAIK (Glasgow and Aberdeen Universities)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether the only compensation secured to any teacher in a voluntary school who may lose his employment through the passing of the Education Bill would be that secured to him under Clause 7 (4), by which clause he is entitled to continue contributions to the deferred annuity fund for six months longer than he would in any case be entitled to do under the rules now in force in pursuance of the Superannuation Act of 1898.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Answer is in the affirmative, but I think that the Government will alter the six months to thirty months. If any reasonable scheme can be devised in the future to mitigate the difficulty the Government will give it their friendly consideration.
