asked the President of the Board of Education whether it has been the general practice of local education authorities, who adopted the provisional minimum scale of salaries for elementary school teachers recommended by the Burnham Standing Joint Committee, to pay normal annual increments in addition to instalments of carry-over to teachers whose correct position is at the maximum of that scale; and whether the Board are prepared to recognise for grant expenditure incurred for that purpose?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and the Board are prepared to recognise the expenditure of the authorities on such payments for the purpose of grant, provided that no teacher thereby receives a greater salary than he would receive if the standard scale allocated to the area were brought into operations, as from 1st April, 1921, by three equal annual instalments.
