OBJECTS AND REASONS

Clause 2 of the Bill I'rings t e definition of C
Council into line with the definition of this ex
section 2 (2) of the Pensions Act, 1947 (No. 1
and in sections 2 (1) of the Pension (Increase)
(No. 10 of 1947) and of the Pensions Increase
(No. 10 of 1953). The adoption of the new def
rectify the anomaly under which the pension of a
tional school teacher whose whole service has be
Presidency is granted by the Federal Executil
whereas and increase to such pension is grant
Executive Council of the Presidency.
2. Clause 3 substitutes the expression I
Schools"' for the expression Federal Inspector ol
the latter office having long since been abolished.
3. Section 3 of the Denominational Schoo
Pension Ordinance, 1931, read in conjunction with s
the snid Ordinance, provides that that Ordinance a);
teachers employed in a Denominational School i.e
mentioned in the Schedule to the Ordinance.









No. of 1954. Dpnominational School Teachers 3 ANTIGUA.
Pension (Amendment)

4. Section 23 of the Ordinance empowers the Governor
in Council from time to time to add to the Schedule the name
of any school.
5. There is provision in section 3 (b) of the Ordinance
that as regards teachers employed in Denominational Schools
at the commencement of the Ordinance (i.e., 28th December,
1931) their service as teachers in the Presidency before the
commencement of the Ordinance should be regarded as service
after the commencement thereof.

6. There is no such provision in relation to teachers in
Denominational Schools when the name of the school is added
to the Schedule after the commencement of the Ordinance.
The pensionable service of such teachers therefore commences
from the date when the name of such school is added to the
Schedule, or from the date of their appointment to such school,
whichever is the later.

7. Neither is there any provision preserving the continuity
of service for pensionable purposes of a teacher employed in
a denominational school who is transferred to another school
not then listed in the Schedule and only added to the Schedule
sometime after the transfer of such teacher to such school.

8. Clause 4 of the Plill seeks to cure both these defects
in the Ordinance by providing that when a school is added to
the Schedule it shall take effect and shall be deemed always to
h',ve had effect as if the name of the school had been inserted
in the Schedule at the commencement uf the Ordinance.
