HC Deb 23 November 1950 vol 481 c490
23. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Education what steps he proposes to take in view of the recent Burnham Agreement to secure that London area allowance is paid to teachers working in schools in the boroughs of Kingston-upon-Thames and Surbiton.

Mr. Tomlinson

None. The Burnham Committee have not yet submitted to me their recommendations for the salaries of teachers in primary and secondary schools.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

When the right hon. Gentleman receives that report will he bear in mind that in the areas mentioned in the Question those in all other occupations receive London allowance, and that that disparity in the treatment of teachers has now been outstanding a good many years?

Mr. Tomlinson

Yes, I will take it into consideration.
