HC Deb 22 March 1956 vol 550 cc1559-60
Mr. Henderson Stewart

I beg to move, in page 16, line 40, after "service" to insert: or upon being employed in service after employment in second class service. Proviso (ii) to the new Section 103 of the 1946 Act proposed by Clause 25 gives a teacher who suffers a reduction in salary the right to elect that his former higher salary should be taken into account for contribution and pension purposes in the following circumstances: first, while continuing to be employed in service in Scotland and, secondly, on being reemployed in service in Scotland. There are sometimes cases of teachers from England who retire to Scotland and are employed in the service in Scotland. The proviso does not give them the same right to elect as that given to Scottish teachers. The purpose of the Amendment is to give them that right. I am sure this is something that all hon. Members would wish done.

Amendment agreed to.
