HC Deb 07 August 1924 vol 176 c3123W

asked the President of the Board of Education (1) whether it is proposed this year to bring in legislation with the object of putting into effect the recommendations of the Report of the Departmental Committee on the Superannuation of School Teachers, and, in particular, the recommendation in paragraph 102 (13) with regard to non-grant-aided schools other than proprietary schools;

(2) whether the applications of certain schools under Section 18 (vii) of the School Teachers' (Superannuation) Act, 1918, and Rule 22 (3) of the School Teachers' (Superannuation) Rules, 1919, which have been held up solely on the ground that the whole question of the admission of such schools to benefit under the Acts of 1918 and 1922 was being reconsidered, can now be dealt with, or whether such applications must wait for further legislation?


I hope to be in a position to introduce legislation relating to the superannuation of teachers next year. I can assure the hon. Gentleman that I shall not overlook the recommendations of the Departmental Committee relating to the position of non-grant-aided schools; but I can give no undertaking that it will be possible to deal with the case of those schools in advance of the general question.
