§ Mr. Grimond
asked the Minister of Education whether, in view of the shortage of teachers, he will introduce legislation to repeal subsection (2) of Section 6 of the Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 1925, which reduces or cancels superannuation payments for any quarter in which a retired teacher would earn out of public funds, including the pension, more than he was drawing as salary before retirement.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
No. It is a principle of Civil Service and other public service pension schemes that the income of a pensioner re-employed under the same employer should not be greater than his salary before retirement, and it would be wrong to treat retired teachers differently.
