HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 cc272-3W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether it is his intention to introduce legislation to deal with the recommendations of the Departmental Committee as to pensions for teachers; and, if so, whether, having regard to the importance of the interchangeability of teachers, he will sympathetically consider the claims of the teachers in preparatory schools to be included in the Government scheme, provided no contribution is asked from the Government towards their pensions or premiums?


The Report of Lord Emmott's Committee is at present receiving my consideration. I may remind my right hon. and learned Friend that the Committee did not recommend the inclusion of the class of schools to which he refers within the State Scheme for the Superannuation of Teachers. I have no doubt that the matter will be brought to the attention of Parliament when legislation is introduced.
