§ Mr. Newens
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he has yet designated the schools of exceptional difficulty for the purpose of the payment of additional salaries; and which schools have been so designated.183W
§ Mr. Edward Short
Yes. Early this month I notified local education authorities of the names of the schools in their areas which I have recognised, on the basis of their recommended order of priority as schools of exceptional difficulty, with effect from 1st April last. I have recognised 572 schools in all. It is for each authority to decide what publicity it wishes to give to the schools in its areas.
