§ Mr. Malcolm MacPherson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the fact that the average amount of pension per annum paid in the last financial year to teachers in Scotland who retired before 1948 was £253, if he will introduce legislation to increase such pensions.
§ Sir E. Boyle
The last Pensions (Increase) Act came into effect in August, 1959: this increased public service pensions, including those of teachers in Scotland, and the largest percentage in creases were given to those who had 81W been retired the longest. My right hon. and learned Friend has no intention at present to introduce another such Bill.
