HC Deb 15 July 1948 vol 453 c1378
10. Mrs. Leah Manning

asked the Minister of Education whether, in view of Circular 170, he will reconsider his decision not to count for pension purposes the services of an Essex headmaster at the Bishop Cotton School, Simla, from 1911–1914 and consequently his subsequent service as a commissioned officer in His Majesty's Forces from 1914–1919, about which particulars have been sent to him.

Mr. Tomlinson

No, Sir. I have written to my hon. Friend about Mr. A. F. Joseph.

Mrs. Manning

Is my right hon. Friend aware that this headmaster is losing £100 a year from his pension as a result of his attitude and that if this gentleman had been born a little later than he was he would not have been penalised in this way?

Mr. Tomlinson

No, Sir. I am not penalising this individual because he was born later but, he did not come under the scheme.
