HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c1918
24. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Education whether he has yet received the recommendations of the Burnham Committee on the subject of the granting of London allowance to teachers working in schools within the Metropolitan Police district but not at present in receipt of this allowance.

Mr. Tomlinson

The committee have proposed that a tribunal of independent persons should consider the question of "London Area" and territorial allowances and make recommendations. They have also recommended that the present provisions should, meanwhile. continue without change.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when that tribunal will sit?

Mr. Tomlinson

No, I cannot.
