HC Deb 25 July 1946 vol 426 c46W
96. Mr. Renton

asked the Minister of Education whether she is aware of certain anomalies and minor injustices in the working of the Burnham scales for schoolteachers; and whether she will take steps to cause a comprehensive review of such scales to be made at an early date in order to remove such anomalies and minor injustices.

Mr. Hardman

The present salary scales for school teachers, which have been recommended by the Burnham Committees and approved by the Minister, remain in force for a period of three years ending on 31st March, 1948; but during that period the committees are free to consider and to submit to her recommendations for their amendment or modification in any particular respects in which they consider it necessary or desirable to do so.
