HC Deb 05 October 1931 vol 257 c815W

asked the President of the Board of Education the approximate amount of expenditure which will be incurred by local education authorities arising from the decision of the Government to reduce the salaries of teachers by 10 per cent.?


It is estimated that in the first full year the proposed reduction of teachers' salaries would lead to a saving of approximately £5,000,000 to public funds. It is proposed to distribute this saving in such a way that the rate expenditure of local education authorities would benefit to the extent of rather less than £500,000.
