HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 c2487W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that certain teachers who were interned at Ruhleben camp during the War were engaged in teaching duties while interned there; and whether he proposes to take into account the years of teaching service given to fellow-British internees at the camp school for the purposes of the grant to local authorities in connection with the increments of such teachers' salaries?


The decision not to recognise periods of internment in calculating teachers' salaries was only arrived at after careful consideration, and I am unable to re-open the question.
