§ 18. Mr. Buchanan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he proposes to take in regard to such local authorities which have introduced a new structure of promoted posts in secondary schools, while the proposals of the Scottish Education Department regarding this new structure were still the subject of discussion between the Department and the teachers' representatives.280W
Mr. Edward Taylor
None. Education authorities have exercised their discretion over a number of years to create paid posts of responsibility in addition to those that are mandatory.
§ 37. Mr. Buchanan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the concern felt by teachers whose promoted posts are being abolished in the new structure being created by certain education authorities, and will be abolished if the proposals of the Scottish Education Department are implemented; if he will make a statement regarding the conservation of salary for teachers adversely affected by his proposals.
