HC Deb 22 May 1924 vol 173 cc2437-8W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that teachers who, on account of War service, had their period of post-graduate training shortened from three terms to two terms, are being penalised in the application of the Burnham scale (paragraph 4, b); and whether he will take the necessary steps to prevent such penalisation?


The Burnham Report does not provide for an additional payment for a period of post-graduate training of less than one year. I cannot anticipate the results of the reconsideration of the Burnham Report which is now proceeding between representatives of local education authorities and of the teachers.
