HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 cc130-1W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware that the recently published Burnham Award provides an increment in the salary of a teacher who has achieved Honours in his First Degree, but makes no such concession in the case of graduates who have taken a Higher Degree, representing, notably in the case of London University, a considerable additional period of study with corresponding expense to the graduate; and whether he will remove this inequality.

Mr. Tomlinson

The publication, to which the hon. Member refers, was not an award but a summary of the main recommendations of the Burnham Committee issued on the Committee's responsibility. I cannot comment on particular recommendations, which have not as yet been officially submitted to me.
