§ Major HURST
asked the President of the Board of Education what proportion of the members of the Committee on Elementary Teachers' Salaries are women; whether such proportion corresponds to the proportion of women among elementary teachers; and whether it is in harmony with the Government's promise to recognise women's claims to equal economic treatment with men?
§ Mr. FISHER
I presume the hon. and gallant Member refers to the Committee of which lord Burnham is chairman. The members of the Committee are not appointed by me, but by the County Councils Association and the Associations of Municipal Corporations and Education Committees on the one side and by the National Union of Teachers on the other. I understand that five members of the Committee are women.
