§ 103. Mr. HARRIS
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware of the hardships suffered by many head teachers by the downgrading now going on; and whether he will consider reverting to Clause 8 of the Burnham Agreement instead of the present salary decision 30?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
The Burnham Committee have recently been re-considering parts of their report which deal with the re-grading of head teachers, with a view to preventing the hardships to which the hon. Member refers, and as a result they have made an amendment of the report, which has been accepted by the Board of Education for grant purposes and has been circulated to local education authorities. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of this amendment.
