HC Deb 17 October 1946 vol 427 c245W
85. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Education whether she will take steps before students leave the emergency training colleges to assess the salary which they should receive on their first appointment.

Mr. Hardman

No, Sir, I fear it would be impracticable to do so. The salaries of teachers have to be assessed by local education authorities on the basis of detailed information of previous service which they obtain for the purpose. A memorandum has been issued giving general advice as to the types of previous experience which may be approved for increments in these cases, and since the memorandum was issued the number of difficult cases referred to this Department have been negligible.
