§ 43. Mr. HARRIS
asked the President of the Board of Education whether changes are contemplated in the means of payment of pensions and annuities to retired teachers; and whether it is proposed to require pensioned teachers to obtain payment of their pensions through local branches of banks?
§ Lord E. PERCY
Teachers pensioned under the Teachers Superannuation Acts are required to obtain payment through a bank, and no change in that respect is proposed. The forms of claim are at present issued quarterly by my Department to the pensioners. It is proposed, in order to save time and labour, that in future the forms shall be issued, a year's supply at each issue, by the Paymaster-General's Office.
