HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 c1402

Where any sum not exceeding one hundred pounds is payable under this Act in respect of a superannuation allowance or gratuity granted to a deceased teacher or of a gratuity granted to the legal personal representatives of a deceased teacher, probate or other proof of title of the legal personal representatives may be dispensed with, and the sum may be paid or distributed to or among the persons appearing to the Board of Education to be beneficially entitled to the personal estate of the deceased teacher, or to or among any one or more of those persons, or in the case of the illegitimacy of the teacher or of his children to or among such persons as the Board may think fit.


I beg to move to leave out the words "of Education." This is again merely a drafting Amendment. The Bill says in Clause 1 that references to the Board mean the Board of Education. Consequently, the words "of Education" are superfluous in this case.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

CLAUSES 9 (Provision as to allowance payable to persons mentally disabled), 10 (Provisions as to refusal, reduction, or suspension of allowance or gratuity), 11 (Penalty for false representation and fraud), 12 (Provisions with respect to deferred annuities under the Act of 1898), 13 (Amendment of Elementary School Teachers Superannuation Acts, 1898 to 1912), and 14 (Provisions with respect to local pensions schemes) ordered to stand part of the Bill.
