HC Deb 10 November 1971 vol 825 c172W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she has read the report of America's Institute of International Education in New York, a copy of which is in her possession, which states that nearly 1,600 teachers from Great Britain have taken up appointments in schools and colleges for better salaries and conditions; and if she will take urgent measures to improve the salary scales of teachers in Wales and England; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Traditionally, many English and Welsh teachers take appointments in the United States and many United States teachers come here This is a desirable interchange.

Teachers' salaries are a matter for the Burnham Committee.
