HC Deb 08 December 1911 vol 32 cc1879-80W

asked the Lord Advocate whether the new superannuation scheme for teachers is intended to affect those teachers who have already retired on account of age or of ill-health; and whether the statement in the memorandum that, apart from the possible liability for contracts already made, the teachers' payment will relieve them of all responsibility for pensions is intended to suggest that, in the case of such teachers, school boards should discontinue those supplements to small pensions which they have hitherto been in the habit of granting at the pleasure of the Board?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the second in the negative.
