HC Deb 22 June 1949 vol 466 cc29-30W
Mr. Baker White

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that pensions to school teachers are paid quarterly whereas other pensions are paid weekly or monthly; and whether, for the convenience of pensioners, he will make arrangements for the future monthly payment of school teachers' pensions.

Mr. Tomlinson

I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Arrangements for the payment of pensions at shorter intervals would involve legislation to amend the Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1925. I am not aware that any considerable number of teachers desire monthly payments.
