§ Sir EDWARD TENNANT
asked the President of the Board of Education what would be the amount of the total superannuation allowance payable at the present time to an elementary certificated teacher, man or woman, who became certificated at the age of 21 years, and who is now compulsorily retired at the age of 66 years; and how much of this is derived from the teacher's contribution and how much from that of the State?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Walter Runciman)
The answer to the question would depend upon the number of years during which the teacher served in recorded service and the number of those years which were served before the commencement of the Elementary School Teachers' (Superannuation) Act, 1898. Superannuation allowances are derived entirely from the State. If my hon. Friend desires further information on this subject and on the subject of the annuities payable to teachers in consideration of their contributions to the Deferred Annuity Fund, I would refer him to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for the Oswestry Division of Shropshire on 26th October last.
§ Mr. HUNT
asked the President of the Board of Education what is the total amount of the superannuation allowance and annuity on which Mr. Turner, of Chingunford, Shropshire, has been retired; at what age such retirement took place; and after what number of years of service as certificated head teacher in public elementary schools?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I must refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for the Oswestry Division of Shropshire on 26th October last.
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The whole of the information is given in the papers I have laid in the Library, and the hon. Gentleman can find the answer there.
