HC Deb 29 June 1909 vol 7 cc361-2W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he will recommend that a compassionate allowance should be offered to Mr. J. P. Smith, who until quite recently was employed as a teacher in a public school in Amble, Northumberland?


I regret that circumstances will not justify the adoption of my hon. Friend's suggestion. The teacher will, on attaining the age of 65, be entitled to the annuity purchaseable by his contributions to the Deferred Annuity Fund.
