§ 59. Mr. EDE
asked the President of the Board of Education if he has considered the advisability of securing that service as a teacher and as one of His Majesty's inspectors of schools should be regarded as continuous and pensionable for superannuation purposes; and if he is willing to take steps to secure that end?
As the hon. Member is no doubt aware, a Departmental Committee is at present engaged in reviewing the existing system of superannuation, and pending their Report, I am not in a position to make any statement.
Speaking without having had the exact case looked up, I would say that it is quite within their terms of reference, and that it is quite open, if that is so, for anyone to ask them to consider it.
