HC Deb 06 March 1922 vol 151 c896W
Lieut.-Colonel HURST

asked the President of the Board of Education how much public money has been spent on teachers' pensions since the 1st April, 1919; and what the amount would have been had the Act of 1918 been retrospective in its operation?


For the period 1st April, 1919, to 31st December, 1921, the total amount of the benefits awarded under the School Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1918, is£2,279,952. I am afraid that it is impossible to give even an approximate answer to the second part of the question.
