The number of retired teachers in receipt of pensions from my Department is 8,696, and the average amount per annum of such pensions is £150. Two clerks are directly employed full-time and two comptometer workers part-time on the relative accounting work. I understand that, in addition, seven members of the staff of His Majesty's Paymaster-General are employed full-time in paying the pensions, and one full-time and one part-time in auxiliary banking services.
