124. Mr. Garner-Evans
asked the Minister of Education the estimated cost of increasing schoolmasters' salaries to a level at which their purchasing power would be equal to that of 1938.
§ Mr. Hardman
As my right hon. Friend explained on 15th June in reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Toxteth (Mr. Bevins) the changes which have been brought about by the Education Act of 1944 and the Burnham Reports which have issued since 1938 introduce so many and involved factors that it is impracticable to calculate an estimate in the form suggested.
