HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c18W
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.
