HC Deb 18 January 1971 vol 809 cc208-9W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what local education authorities in Wales operate a system of additional allowances for teachers in educational priority area schools, immigrant children areas, and in the field of the teaching of Welsh; what individual local education authorities have secured adjustments to meet their wishes in the field of the quota; and what local education authorities in Wales, in respect of the 1971–72 quotas, have applied for further allocations.

Mr. van Straubenzee

I have been asked to reply.

Certain schools in Cardiff were designated as schools of exceptional difficulty, at which teachers receive additional payments. There is no provision for additional payments in the fields mentioned by the hon. Member.

Adjustments to the teacher quota for the current year have been made for one or more of the reasons given for all Welsh authorities except Radnorshire and Newport.

Anglesey has applied for an additional allocation for 1971–72; the basic quota was notified only on 12th January.
