§ Colonel HERBERT
asked the President of the Board of Education whether an undertaking was given to certificated teachers who took up their work before 1862 that at sixty-five years of age they should retire on two-thirds of their standing salaries; and, if so, whether this undertaking has been carried out?
§ Mr. HERBERT FISHER
The answer is in the negative. I may refer the hon. and gallant Member to the Report from the Select Committee on Elementary Schools (Certificated Teachers), House of Commons Paper, No. 344, of 1872.
