HC Deb 27 November 1952 vol 508 c81W
94. Mr. W. R. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the maximum rates paid for overtime and supervisory duties in approved schools; when were these rates last revised; and whether he is satisfied that the rates are adequate.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

As recommended in 1946 by the Reynolds Committee, teachers and instructors in approved schools engaged on supervisory duties outside normal working hours receive an allowance, the maximum of which is £104 a year for a weekly average of 15 hours' duty. Negotiations are proceeding for the establishment of a committee to deal, on Whitley principles, with the pay and conditions of service, including such matters as extra duty allowance, of approved school and remand home staff whose rates of pay are related to Burnham scales. Other grades of staff entitled to overtime are paid the rates adopted from time to time by appropriate national wage-fixing bodies.
