§ 23. Sir E. Boyle
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to introduce a superannuation scheme for part-time teachers in institutions of further education.
§ Mr. Edward Short
I have not yet received any recommendations from the Working Party on Superannuation Arrangements for Part-time Teachers about the introduction of a scheme for teachers in further education establishments. I understand that the Committee has some proposals under consideration and is seeking the views of a number of local education authorities on the difficult administrative issues involved.
§ Sir E. Boyle
Is the right hon. Gentle-man aware of the widespread hope that it will soon be possible to make progress on this issue and that, just as there was great feeling about a scheme for those teaching part-time—half-time or more— 606 in the schools, so there is great hope in the world of further education that progress will be made on this issue?
