HC Deb 26 October 1954 vol 531 c1751
38. Mr. Willis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what discussions he has had with the Educational Institute of Scotland on the question of monthly payment of teachers' pensions; and what action is proposed.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

At a meeting on 17th July, the Educational Institute of Scotland made representations to my right hon. Friend about the monthly payment of teachers' pensions. He is considering these representations, but he cannot at present make any statement on the subject.

Mr. Willis

Will the hon. Gentleman say when we are likely to have an answer, as 17th July is almost four months ago?

Mr. Stewart

If the hon. Member is asking for a date, I am afraid I cannot give him one.
