30. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the Secretary for Scotland what provision he has been able to make towards providing a war bonus to supplement the salaries of teachers; how many women teachers there are in Scotland earning not more than £75 a year who are receiving no war bonus because the school boards have refused the Government offer; and whether any provision is made for pensioned teachers?
§ Mr. MUNRO
School boards and other managers of schools who pay war bonuses to their teachers may claim a special Grant at the rates and on the conditions stated in the Memorandum, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend. As the boards are not required to make any intimation of their decision until they 435 claim the Grant after the end of March, the information asked for in the second part of the question is not at present available. The answer to the concluding part of the question is in the negative.
Can the right hon. Gentleman state whether the Memorandum to which he refers stating the terms of the Government's offer has now been sent to every school board?
