HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 cc226-7
81. Mr. REDDY

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether it is the intention of the Government to grant an increase to Irish national school teachers who have retired on pensions of less than £1 a week, as has been already done, according to Press reports, in the case of retired elementary school teachers in Scotland?


I have no knowledge of the appropriation of money from the Votes in respect of Scottish education for pensions to retired teachers. I will make inquiries on the subject. At present no funds for the purpose are at my disposal.
