§ Mr. S. Marshall
asked the Minister of Education how many qualified men teachers are employed by local authorities whose service exceeds 25 years and whose salary does not exceed £375 per annum.238W
§ Mr. Tomlinson
The rate applicable to a male qualified teacher after 25 years' full-time teaching service which is eligible to rank for increments as service in that capacity is substantially in excess of £375 per annum. For some of the teachers for whom earlier teaching service in a lower status constitutes their only qualification for the status of qualified teacher the salary rate prescribed by the Burnham Report might lie between £330 per annum and £375 per annum. Information as to the precise number of male teachers who are in this position is not readily available. The total number of male assistant teachers qualified by long service as uncertificated teacher, etc., was 502 in March, 1949; many of these would have been entitled to salaries in excess of £375 per annum.
