HC Deb 02 November 1908 vol 195 cc790-1

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether, in the case of voluntary schools closed in consequence of the inability of the parents or managers to provide the necessary funds, above the 47s. grant, for its maintenance, the teachers in such school who have paid their contributions to a superannuation fund, under the provisions of the Teachers Superannuation Act, 1898, will lose the benefit of such payments.


Teachers are entitled to the annuity purchaseable by their contributions to the Deferred Annuity Fund whether they continue in recorded service or not. Those teachers whose length of service does not qualify them for a superannuation allowance on attaining the age of sixty-five will, if they desire to secure one, be under the necessity of obtaining a post elsewhere.
