36. Mr. BUCHAN-HEPBURN
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he proposes to refund part of the superannuation contributions to those head teachers whose schools have been down-graded through circumstances outside their own control, and who have hitherto been paying superannuation contributions on the salary of a higher grade?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Under the Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1925, contributions are payable on the salary of the teacher for the time being, and there is no power to refund any part of the contributions on the occurrence of a reduction in salary.
