§ Mr. SAVERY
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he will try to meet the desire of members of the teaching profession to be included in the benefits of the Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Act, 1925?
I have been asked to reply. I would point out that the Bill as originally introduced provided for the inclusion of teachers and their subsequent exclusion was in large measure due to representations made on behalf of the vast majority of teachers. While representations have recently been made by a special section of the profession for the inclusion of teachers, there is no indication of any change in the attitude of the profession as a whole.
