HC Deb 03 December 1919 vol 122 cc410-1
105. Mr. TAYLOR

asked the Secretary for Scotland when the forms for reclaiming the premiums paid by the teachers under the old superannuation scheme were to be issued to the teacher by the Scottish Education Department; and how soon might the teachers expect to have the sums they have paid refunded?

Colonel GIBBS

More than half of the forms have been issued, and it is hoped to complete this part of the work by the end of December. Repayment has been made in some thousands of cases, and is being carried out as rapidly as possible.


Is it the fact that some teachers have not been paid, and that this has caused discontent? Is there any reason why the forms should not be sent to the education authorities instead of to the Department?

Colonel GIBBS

I will have that question also conveyed to my right hon. Friend.

Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

Would it not be better for the Lord Advocate to be here to answer these questions?
