HC Deb 19 February 1973 vol 851 c21W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the salary range for a teacher with a first class honours degree in each of the past 10 years.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

For an assistant teacher in a maintained school—other than a special school or a school of exceptional difficulty—outside the London area the figures are:

From 1st April £
1963 850–2,150
1965 950–2,330
1967 1,020–2,470
1969 1,090–2,622
1970 1,210–2,742
1971 1,359–3,005
1972 1,491–3,489


1. The figures do not relate to deputy head teachers and head teachers. The 1972 maximum relates to the new grade of senior teacher.

2. The maxima include, for 1963, increments for training; and up to 1970 inclusive the highest head of department allowance which was then consolidated into a new scale.
