MR. DUNDAS WHITE
To ask the Secretary for Scotland with reference to the deductions from the grants payable to school boards and other educational bodies for teachers' superannuation under 508 Clause 13 of the Education (Scotland) Bill, as amended by the Standing Committee, whether that deduction is to be made in respect of the teachers of each school board or other governing body from the amount of the grants otherwise allocated to that school board or governing body, or whether it is to be made in respect of the teachers as a whole from the grants as a whole before that allocation takes place.
(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) It is proposed that the deductions in question should be made from the grant to each school, whether under a school board or other governing body, in respect of the teachers employed in that school, and not from the grants as a whole before allocation in respect of all the teachers in employment in Scotland.
