§ 27. Mr. DENMAN
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education if, in view of the fact, to which attention has been called in the twentieth annual report of the Carnegie Trust, that Carnegie Hall suffers from the handicap that teachers proposing to take a year's course are faced with immediate expenditure and no increase in maximum salary, he will say whether any steps are being taken to remove this handicap?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
My Noble Friend's attention has been drawn to the report to which the hon. Member refers. The position as regards the salary of teachers, who have attended the Carnegie Physical Training College is not a peculiar one; it is no different from that of any other teachers who have taken an extended period of training. The question of the alteration of the relevant provisions of the Burnham scales is, in the first instance, a matter for the Burnham Committees, to whom, it is understood, representations have already been made by the authorities of the college.
§ Mr. DENMAN
Can my hon. Friend tell me whether the committee are likely to take this matter into their consideration quickly?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
I cannot say, and, in view of the fact that the matter will probably come before the Burnham Committee, I cannot express an opinion.
