§ Mr. WILLIAM PEEL
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been directed to the low salaries of assistant masters in secondary schools; and, if so, what steps is he prepared to take to improve their position in this respect?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Runciman)
The question has been engaging my attention for some time. I am not at present prepared to make any statement. I may refer the hon. Member to the answers I gave on the 1st August and the 12th April to the hon. Member for the Exchange Division of Liverpool and to my hon. Friend the Member for North Salford, respectively.
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I cannot say that all schoolmasters' salaries are low, but there is a large number—too large a number.
