§ Sir HILDRED CARLILE
asked the President of the Board of Education whether there is any hope of an additional Grant being made to the 10,000 teachers who failed to accept the Superannuation Act of 1898; and whether these teachers will be given a share in the increased benefits of 10s. a year for every year of service granted by the Act of 1912?
The Board are prevented by the terms of the Act itself from applying the Elementary School Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1898, to those teachers who declined to accept it. I regret that there are no funds at my disposal for the purpose suggested by the hon. Member.
