§ Mr. Boyden
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he proposes to count housemasters in approved schools with 10 years' satisfactory service as fully qualified and award them the appropriate salary scale.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The scale of remuneration for approved school housemasters is a matter for the Standing Joint Advisory Committee for Staffs of Children's Homes, whose awards are recognised for grant purposes by the Home Office. The Committee has recently agreed that housemasters in post on 1st April, 1962, who at that date are not less than 45 years of age and have ten years' service shall be entitled to the housemasters' full scale, which has a maximum of £1,015 per annum.
