HC Deb 21 January 1924 vol 169 cc542-3W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether any steps are being taken to secure earlier optional retirement for teachers at the age of 55 on a proportionate pension; and, if not, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter at an early date?


The existing arrangements for the superannuation of teachers are now under consideration as a whole in connection with the Report of Lord Emmott's Committee; but the hon. Member is doubtless aware that the Committee did not recommend a modification of the existing system in the direction suggested by him.
