HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 cc42-3W
73. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if, in view of the acceptance of new salary scales for teachers, he will now make a statement on the general grant to local authorities.

Mr. H. Brooke

I am satisfied that the increased cost to local authorities which will result from the pay scale for teachers recommended by the Burnham Main Committee, which my right hon. Friend the Minister of Education has now approved, will justify an amending General Grant Order, which will be submitted to the House for approval in due course.
