§ Mr. De Chair
asked the Minister of Education, in view of the fact that the cost of living has increased by over 80 per cent. since 1938, whereas the salaries of teachers have increased since then by only 27.7 per cent. in some cases in London for those who have the longest service, whether he will consider the desirability of a Government grant of £250 to teachers to tide them over the period until any increase in salaries is decided upon.
