HC Deb 15 June 1972 vol 838 c358W
31. Mrs. Fenner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why disturbance allowance for heads taking up new appointments is available to married men and not to married women.

Mr. van Straubenzee

These payments are not made under any requirements, or powers, contained in the Education Acts but are wholly at the discretion of the local education authority.
