§ 53. Sir HENRY CRAIK
asked the President of the Board of Education what is the number of contributors to the Teachers' Annuity Fund under the Superannuation Act of 1898 who have not been awarded the annuity to which they were entitled on the expiration of their certificate, after having attained the age of sixty-five years; and what is the total amount of the contributions which they have paid?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Pease)
The Board are not always informed as to deaths of teachers, and I cannot therefore say whether any contributors to the Deferred Annuity Fund have attained the age of sixty five years and have not claimed their annuities. In every case in which the annuity has been claimed, the amount due in respect of the contributions made has been paid.
§ Sir H. CRAIK
Is it not the case that some time ago the right hon. Gentleman stated that a considerable number of contributions had been paid in respect of which no annuity was ever paid?
