§ 65. Miss Herbison
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why school attendance officers in Scotland receive £2 a week less than school attendance officers in England and Wales.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
The salary scales recommended for these officers are negotiated between employers and employees on one of the National Joint Industrial Councils for Local Authorities Services (Scotland). I am not a party to the negotiations, and I do not know what considerations the Council takes into account in reaching its decisions.
