§ Mr. ERNEST EVANS
asked the President of the Board of Education how many claims for compensation under Section 3 of the School Teachers' Superanuation Act, 1922, have been received by his Department; whether any awards have yet been made; and, if not, when it will be possible to give a decision?
Duchess of ATHOLL
Two hundred and eighty-nine claims have been received, all from teachers serving under the same authority; seven of these claims have been withdrawn. No awards of compensation have yet been made. As2048W regards the last part of the question, my right hon. Friend is unable to say when the Government Actuary's reports, on which the Board is directed by statute to act, will be ready, but he hopes that they will be available shortly.
