HC Deb 03 March 1936 vol 309 cc1209-10W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that metal-work instructors in the employ of the London County Council lent for service as supervisors in munition factories during the Great War, and also domestic economy instructresses lent as supervisors under the Canteens Board were allowed to count these periods as pensionable teaching service; and if he will consider granting the same privilege to the five London County Council teachers interned in Ruhleben during the Great War?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I am advised that it is impossible to regard the period for which a civilian teacher was interned during the War as pensionable service under the Teachers (Superannuation) Acts.

Forward to
