HC Deb 25 March 1920 vol 127 c632W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether female teachers doing the same work as male teachers are receiving the salary fixed for the male teachers; and whether, in the event of such not being done, he is prepared to grant the same?


Men and women teachers employed by local education authorities in public elementary schools are almost invariably paid according to scales which are different for the two sexes. I do not propose to override the discretion of local education authorities and other school authorities in this matter.
