Teachers' Superannuation.

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Education. – in the House of Commons on 30th March 1922.

Alert me about debates like this



asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the Burnham standard and the Pensions Act of 1918 have attracted a number of young people, among them many ex-service men, into the teachers' training institutions, from which some have already been drafted into the teaching profession; and, seeing that there is a strong feeling among these students and teachers that the proposed 5 per cent. deduction from salaries for superannuation purposes constitutes a breach of the conditions under which they entered this profession, will he reconsider this question?
