HC Deb 16 June 1961 vol 642 cc80-1W
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 been retired the longest. My right hon. and learned Friend has no intention at present to introduce another such Bill.
