HC Deb 08 May 1950 vol 475 cc28-9W
Mr. Thurtle

asked the Minister of Education if he will arrange for the question of an increase of the pay of teachers to be submitted to an appropriate independent tribunal.

Mr. Tomlinson

As I have already stated, negotiations in regard to salary scales for teachers are expected to open in the near future. This is the function of the committees which have been set up under Section 89 of the Education Act, 1944, and it would not be appropriate for me to intervene at this juncture in the manner suggested.
