§ MR. J. H. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education if it is proposed by the Government to insert in the Education Bill clauses proposing the establishment of a system of retiring allowances for aged or infirm teachers in public elementary schools, or to introduce a separate Bill for that purpose; and, if the latter be the case, at what date he hopes to be able to introduce the Measure?
§ SIR JOHN GORST
It would not be practicable to introduce clauses dealing with the superannuation of teachers into the Education Bill, and the Government do not see their way to introduce a Teachers' Pension Bill until after the provisions of the Education Bill have been settled by the House. ["Hear!"]
§ MR. W. T. DOXFORD (Sunderland)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether Clause 12 of the Education Bill, Section 1, Sub-sections (e), (f), and (g), is intended to apply to private 1566 schools, owned by private persons, which receive no public money whatever?
