HC Deb 18 November 1920 vol 134 c2099
80. Lieut.-Colonel MORDEN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his atention has been drawn to the difficult position of superannuated university teachers who, under the Teachers' Superannuation Act, do not enjoy pension privileges accorded to teachers in primary and secondary schools; and whether he is prepared to make any concessions in this matter?


My attention was drawn to the question of the superannuation of university teachers by a deputation from the university authorities and the Association of University Teachers, which my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education and I received on 17th June. I have undertaken to consider the possibility of proposing to Parliament a special non-recurrent grant next year to assist the universities in meeting the difficulty of dealing with senior members of their staffs who, by reason of the recent date of its introduction, derive little or no benefit from the Federated Superannuation Scheme.
