HC Deb 23 June 1910 vol 18 cc618-9W
Captain CLIVE

asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that dissatisfaction exists among school teachers at the working of the Teachers Superannuation Act of 1898; and if he will appoint a Departmental Committee, on which teachers' representatives can serve, to consider the best way of applying the fund to which they are compelled to contribute?


I have consulted with the Treasury, and I fear that in present circumstances, and pending further experience as to the mortality of teachers, and the sufficiency of the fund to discharge existing liability, no useful purpose would be served by an inquiry, departmental or other, into the points referred to, and I am unable to entertain any such proposal.
