HC Deb 16 May 1924 vol 173 c1710W
Captain RAMAGE

asked the President of the Board of Education if his attention has been drawn to the difficulty at present experienced in staffing suitably the juvenile unemployment centres, owing to the fact that such service is of a temporary character and is not recognised for the purpose of the School Teachers Superannuation Acts; and if he will take any steps towards the removal of these difficulties in view of the great national importance of these centres?


As I have already explained in reply to a question in this House, as long as the existing arrangements for financing the centres continue, it would not be possible for me without amending legislation to treat service in them as recognised service for the purposes of the School Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1918.
