§ 86. Mr. Willis
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what reply he has made to the representations of the staff of Niddrie Marischal School concerning the Draft Teachers' Salaries (Scotland) Amendment No. 2, Regulations, 1955.
§ Mr. J. Stuart
I have received a considerable number of representations, including representations from teachers in Leith Academy and Niddrie Marischal School, on the changes in the scales for teachers of non-academic subjects proposed in the draft Regulations published on 23rd June. I will, in accordance with with normal practice, consider all these representations and discuss them with the National Joint Council before making Regulations and laying them before Parliament.
