HC Deb 10 November 1919 vol 121 c68W

asked the President of the Board of Education if equal pay is given for men and women teachers of the same professional status; and, if not, whether he is prepared to grant the same and upon what grounds it has been refused previously?


Subject to compliance with the Board's requirements as to minimum rates of salary for certificated and uncertificated teachers in public elementary schools, the remuneration of men and women teachers, respectively, is determined by the local education authorities and school governing bodies which I employ them. I am not prepared to interfere with their discretion in this respect.
