HC Deb 02 December 1908 vol 197 cc1464-5

I beg to ask the President of he Board of Education if the Fair Wages Clause, invariably inserted in Government contracts, is to be applied to the employment of teachers in contracting-out schools under Clause 3 of the Elementary Education (England and Wales) Bill; and, if so, will he make that clear by amending the text of the Bill accordingly.


I am considering in what way it can most satisfactorily be provided in the Bill that the teachers in contracting-out schools shall receive adequate remuneration, to the satisfaction of the Board of Education, regard being had to the rate of salaries paid by local education authorities to teachers in other public elementary schools.
