HC Deb 08 March 1923 vol 161 cc695-6
43. Mr. HAYDAY

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has refused to allow a. local education authority to pay ex-service men who have been trained as teachers by the Ministry of Labour more than an initial commencing salary of a beginner, namely, £156 per annum less 5 Per cent. reduction and 5 per cent. for superannuation; whether he is aware that many of these men are approaching middle age and have families, and find it impossible to live decently on such a salary; and whether, in view of their position and responsibilities, as distinct from those of young men or women commencing in the profession, he will allow the local authorities to pay a commensurate salary?


On the information given in the question it is not clear to me what particular class of teacher the hon. Member has in mind. If he will supply me with fuller details, I will look into the matter.
