HC Deb 16 January 1913 vol 46 cc2262-3

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the education committee of the county of Glamorgan still persist in their refusal to carry out the law, and are still differentiating unfairly against denominational teachers in the matter of salaries; whether the Glamorgan Education Committee are the only Welsh authority that are still defying the law in this respect; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


All the cases in dispute between the Glamorganshire Local Education Authority and the managers of non-provided schools as to the payment in non-provided schools of lower salaries than in provided schools which were referred to the Board are, I believe, settled. The Anglesey Local Education Authority have asked for further directions, which are being sent to-day, to enable them to carry out the determinaion of the Board, dated 17th October last year, in the case of Menai Bridge, Llandysilio, Church of England School. No questions as to the fulfilment of their legal obligations by other Welsh authorities in regard to teachers' salaries are at present before the Board.


Are we to understand from that answer with regard to Glamorgan that there is now no differentiation between the salaries of teachers in provided and non-provided schools?


So far as we have any official information all these questions have been settled between the managers and the local authority in Glamorganshire.
