HC Deb 06 February 1918 vol 101 c2248W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if (1) the Board will insist that boards of guardians having control of schools shall pay their teachers the same salaries as teachers of similar status under the local education authority from whose area the scholars in the Poor Law school are drawn; and (2) whether, in view of the fact that additional Grants are being made to local educational authorities mainly and primarily for the purpose of increasing teachers' salaries, any steps are being taken to obtain from the Treasury a Grant to enable boards of guardians to increase the salaries of teachers in Poor Law schools similarly?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers which I gave to the similar questions asked by the hon. Member for the Rotherhithe Division on the 31st January.
