HC Deb 11 April 1907 vol 172 c372

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the fact that the Monmouthshire Education Committee recently passed a resolution that the salaries of teachers who had completed their apprenticeship should be raised to £25, and subsequently stated that the resolution applied only to teachers in council schools, he proposes to take any action to remedy this treatment of teachers in voluntary schools.


The settlement of the salaries of teachers rests with the local education authority and so long as the local education authority fulfil their statutory duty to maintain and keep efficient the public elementary schools in their area, I see no reason to interfere.
