§ SIR RICHARD PAGET
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the number of applications for pensions by elementary school teachers of long standing, and of the small number of pensions granted hitherto, he will be good enough to inform the House what sum he proposes to devote during the coming year for the purpose of providing pensions for teachers worn out in the public service, irrespective of the larger scheme for State-aided pensions?
§ SIR W. HARCOURT
I answered this question on Saturday. I said I was in communication with the Vice President of the Council and not yet prepared to give a definite reply.
§ SIR R. PAGET
This is not exactly the same question. It refers to the older teachers from whom the Vice President stated the other day that a sum was to be set apart by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the present year.
