§ Mr. MUNRO-FERGUSON
asked the President of the Board of Education, whether his attention has been drawn to the superannuation scheme for teachers in Scotland; whether he intends to provide a scheme for England on a like basis; and whether he can state what would be its cost.
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I need hardly remind my honourable Friend that the conditions of service and the bases of existing schemes differ considerably in England and Wales from those in Scotland. I hope shortly to introduce a scheme under which a substantial improvement will be made in the scale of pensions under the Elementary School Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1898.
