HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 c316W
99. Mrs. Manning

asked the Minister of Education why his Department does not recognise as pensionable service broken periods of college training for men who volunteered in the 1914–18 war.

Mr. Tomlinson

The matter is governed by the Teachers Superannuation Rules, 1926, which were made in full consultation with the representatives of teachers and their employers. The rules enable a training college student to reckon his war service in the 1914–18 war as pensionable from the day following that on which he would, in the normal way, have completed his course of training and been ready for teaching.
