§ 58. Major Anstruther-Gray
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has considered representations from the Scottish Schoolmasters' Association with regard to their claim to be heard orally by the National Joint Council in regard to recent salary negotiations; and what reply he has made to these representations.
§ Mr. Henderson Stewart
Yes. My right hon. Friend advised the Association that they were not debarred from submitting their views to the Council. They did so in writing and asked the Council to receive a deputation. The Council decided not to receive a deputation. This decision was within their powers under their Constitution.
