HC Deb 27 October 1947 vol 443 c38W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Education if he will inquire into the position of certain teachers exemplified in the case of a member of the teaching staff of the Grammar School, Steyning, Sussex, details of which have been submitted to him, in which increments in his salary have been unjustifiably withheld; and if he will take measures to rectify this position.

Mr. Tomlinson

I have looked into the circumstances of the particular case to which the hon. Member refers and find that the teacher's salary is at the rate prescribed by the Burnham Report. I am not aware that increments are being unjustifiably withheld from this teacher, or on what grounds it is suggested that other teachers are not being paid the salaries to which they are entitled under the prescribed salary scales.
