HC Deb 26 May 1943 vol 389 cc1583-4W
Major Procter

asked the President of the Board of Education how the £100 salary rising to a maximum of £120 paid to supplementary teachers compares with the salary paid to other people doing similar work in other branches of commercial activity?

Mr. Ede

My right hon. Friend feels that it is not possible to equate the work of supplementary teachers employed in elementary schools with that of young women engaged in any branch of commercial activity.
