§ Mr. William Ross
The agreement reached in the Scottish Teachers' Salaries Committee for a salaries revision to take effect from 1st April 1974 was approved by the Pay Board on 10th May, subject to further examination of certain minor restructuring proposals. A meeting of the Salaries Committee is being held on 29th May for this purpose.
With the Pay Board's consent the Joint Secretaries of the Salaries Committee wrote to education authorities on 8th May recommending them to make an interim payment as soon as possible of the minimum increase which every teacher would receive under the salaries agreement, i.e. £141 per annum.
