HC Deb 09 July 1923 vol 166 cc938-9W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that a number of civil servants now serving in his Department and the National Savings Committee, who have been in the teaching profession, are unable to add their teaching service to those of the Civil Service, as is done in Scotland, for the purpose of reckoning total pensionable service; and whether he will consider the advisability of securing the removal of this anomaly?


I am aware of the facts stated in the first part of the question, but the hon. Member will understand that, pending the report of the Departmental Committee now sitting on the superannuation of teachers, and the consideration of any recommendations which they make for the alteration of the existing law, it is impossible for me to make any statement on the matter.
