§ Mr. WATERSON
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?
§ Mr. FISHER
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.
