HC Deb 18 March 1919 vol 113 c1940W

asked the President of the Board of Education if it is proposed to introduce shortly a national scale of salaries for teachers; if a Committee will be appointed to determine this scale; and if upon such Committee the uncertificated teachers of the country will have direct representation?


The hon. Member's question raises issues of great complexity and difficulty, and I am not prepared to make any statement on the subject. In any case the time is not, in my opinion, ripe for such action as he suggests, and I have no reason to believe that it would be welcomed by teachers.
