HC Deb 05 April 1922 vol 152 cc2228-9

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the Government's educational policy in regard to the increased size of classes and reduction of the number of teachers, resulting in serious interference with effective teaching, as also the cut of 5 per cent, in teachers' salaries, have been generally condemned as uneconomic and a breach of faith with the teachers; and whether, in view of the Government's statement that the teachers' pension system was to be further investigated, he will promise that such investigation shall precede any final decision on this matter?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN (Leader of the House)

I have nothing to add to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Education to a question on this subject on the 27th March, and to his subsequent statement in the Debate on the Consolidated Fund Bill on the 28th March.


Do the Government intend to have the investigation specially referred to by the Chancellor of the Exchequer?


I have said, I have nothing to add to the statement of my right hon. Friend.
