The monies required to meet the charges under the Superannuation Scheme of 1919 for Scottish teachers are derived from:

  3. (c) Balance drawn from the Education (Scotland) Fund.
For the year 1919–20 the amounts under (a)£173,494 and (b) £85,120 more than sufficed to meet the total payments of £176,627, and the balance of £81,987 was paid into the Education (Scotland) Fund.

For the year 1920–21 the amounts were (a) £184,120, (b) £68,481, (c) £155,823.
