HC Deb 02 March 1911 vol 22 c711W

asked the Lord Advocate, how many School Boards in Scotland have made retiring allowances to janitors or caretakers, the number of janitors or caretakers to whom retiring allowances are being paid in each town by the School Board?


The Department have not the complete information desired at their disposal, their records on this point dating back only to the passing of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1908, which provided for the consent of the Department being obtained to the award of such retiring allowances. Since this Act came into force nine School Boards have obtained consent to grant to eighteen janitors or caretakers retiring allowances amounting in the aggregate to £525 per annum.
