HC Deb 18 June 1920 vol 130 c1629W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that distress exists amongst supplementary teachers caused by the low salaries paid and the high cost of living; that many of them have devoted their whole life to teaching and have done splendid service; and whether he can take any steps to see that their salaries are increased on somewhat similar lines to those of teachers who come under the Burnham scale?


The Board have only recently obtained from the local education authorities returns as to the present salaries of these teachers. Before I make any statement on the subject, it is desirable that these returns should be tabulated and their results considered.
