HC Deb 15 December 1955 vol 547 c1374
23. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Education the position with regard to the introduction of a comprehensive widows' and orphans' pensions scheme for teachers.

Sir D. Eccles

This is an important matter, but I cannot at present add to what I said in the debate on the Superannuation Bill on 6th December.

Dame Irene Ward

Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that I think that this is a very important matter, and that I hope that suitable progress will be made by co-operation between the Government and the teachers, both men and women?
