56. Major HOPE
asked whether, in view of the terms of Section 1 (2) (d) and Section 2 (1) (a) of the Elementary School Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1898, a certificated teacher who transfers from Scotland to England is entitled to superannuation allowance from the English Board of Education if his recorded service in England is less than half his total service as a certificated teacher in Scotland and England?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
In such a case recorded service in Scotland prior to the 1st April, 1912, the date on which the Scotch Teachers' Superannuation Scheme came into operation, is reckonable; but in view of the provisions of Section 14 (6) of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1908, it would not appear to be possible to have regard to service in Scotland after that date for any purposes under the Elementary School Teachers (Superannuation) Acts.
Mr. MASTER MAN
I think the hon. and gallant Gentleman, if he will do so, had better look at it and think it. out. It is a qualified negative.
