§ Mr. Kinnock
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, in the forthcoming regulations relating to the pensions of teachers retired since 1 April 1979, he proposes to make provision to improve arrangements for compensating teachers for loss of employment in line with the pensions improvements.
§ Dr. Boyson
The regulations will relate only to superannuation and will provide, in certain cases, for pensions to be calculated by reference to notional salaries higher than those in fact received. But in so far as any compensation payment is calculated by reference to "average salary" within the meaning of the Teachers' Superannuation Regulations 1976, there will automatically be corresponding increases in that compensation.
